🐝Plants for Pollinators🐝



Insects such as bees, hoverflies and butterflies that go from flower to flower collecting nectar and pollen are essential for pollination and fertilisation of many plants. Without them, lots of plants are unable to produce seed for the next generation and much of the fruit and vegetables that we eat is the result of insect pollination. Put bluntly, without pollinating insects we would all starve.

It is widely beleived that pollinating insects are in decline, so gardeners can help reverse the trend by choosing plants from the following lists, ensuring there is something in flower all through the year to keep our flying friends fed and happy.

Choose varieties with single, rather than double flowers, as doubles are more often than not sterile and don't produce pollen.

Avoid using pesticides, especially on plants in flower.
