I am keen on a wildlife friendly garden. Over the years it is clear to me that if you provide what the wildlife want, food, shelter, and water they visit your garden in abundance. Year on year the numbers of bees, butterflies, birds, dragonflies, insects and moths increases as the garden provides more and more what the wildlife like.
Consciously adding into the garden plants which attract bees does make a difference and we all now know, we need bees. Providing food, shrubs with berries and shelter brings in a diversity of birds and a garden pond is a wildlife magnet.
If you are looking for inspiration for plants to grow this season why not consider spring flowering plants attractive to bees and also for the summer, a simply and easy way to create a wildflower patch.
