Pollinators around the world are in severe decline, and they desperately need our help. Different species such as bees and hover flies collect nectar and pollen from a variety of flowers, and they require a constant supply of these throughout the year.
By creating a ‘corridor’ of plants from which they can forage, we can ensure that they never go hungry, no matter what the season. Our gardens provide the perfect opportunity to do this. By swapping pollinator-friendly plants amongst ourselves, we can build the ultimate pollinator highway, street by street.
