Many of the plants in our farms and gardens could not flourish without bees, butterflies and other pollinators spreading pollen.
By planting flowers for pollinators in our Naturespaces, it is possible for everyone to make a real difference and turn the tide on this decline. It also means you will get to see more of these fabulous creatures in your Naturespace!
There are a number of things you can do to show you aren’t neglecting your garden, but actually helping pollinators. Simply put up a sign in your garden, or you can even mow a neat border and pathways around sections of longer grass to show that it’s intentional. Finally, you can tell your neighbours about Naturehood, encourage them to have a go themselves, and work with others in your community to create a thriving Naturehood for insects and other animals!
What you choose to plant is up to you! However, the number of options can be somewhat overwhelming, so take a look at some of our suggestions for the different seasons.
