Plant flowers

Planting nectar and pollen-rich flowers is an easy way to provide resources for pollinators, including bees, hoverflies, butterflies and beetles. Here’s your guide to help you plant flowers for wildlife.

Adding pollen and nectar-rich plants to your space is a brilliant way to provide food that supports dwindling populations of pollinators.

Choose plants with different flower shapes, like flat, tubular and bell, so different types of pollinators can find their preferred type.

Aim for around three to six plants per m2 of ground. If you donʼt have space, pots work too!

Great options for spring include heather, primrose, red clover and cuckoo flower.
