New garden, no pollinators

last year
last modified: last year

We moved last year from Humble to the Spring/Woodlands area and I’ve been working so hard on my new garden but I can’t seem to attract pollinators despite using all the right plants. I had no problem at my previous garden.

The only difference I can think of is that our current house is on a golf course but that’s it. Next year I want to plant citrus and peaches but I really need those pollinators. What am I doing wrong?

Plant list: butterfly bush, basil, mint, lavender, rosemary, sage, lantana, roses, jasmine sambac, hibiscus and mandevilla.

Edit: No spray garden, also planted milkweed and not one monarch or eggs have been seen.
