Bee's & Insects
All bee species perform an incredibly important function in our gardens and help to keep the garden healthy. To help create a bee friendly habitat try to include a variety of plants in your garden. Planting with varying flowering times ensures that a food source is available to them throughout the year and provides them with a varied diet.
Although studies show that bees prefer native or near-native species, including some exotic plants that flower at different times to our native species can help to give them a meal after the native display is over.
