POLLINATOR FRIENDS: GARDEN PLANT OF THE MONTH FOR JULY

Summer bloomers in pink, white and purple

THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS BUZZING!

A green garden is not just a joy to look at, walk through and relax in; it’s also a paradise for bumblebees, honeybees, butterflies and other useful insects. A flowering garden is a sweet shop for them, particularly since intensive agriculture and increasing paving mean that they are struggling to find food. This is threatening these useful creatures, who are very important for pollinating flowers, plants and crops. A green garden with pollinator friends helps tackle the lack of diverse nutrition and results in plenty of cheerful buzzing, fluttering and humming life. These plants supplement what is already growing and flowering in the area and help to create a healthy biotope in your neighbourhood #sustainability.

These are the Pollinator Friends:
