The Pollinator Garden about flowers, pollinating insects, and gardening

Insects and Flowers

Flowers don't exist just to ornament our gardens and look pretty. Flowers evolved in close and special relationships with their pollinators. Gardeners owe these pollinators a debt.


What are Pollinators?

They are insects such as hoverflies, bees, beetles, wasps, butterflies and moths.


Pollinator Gardens

In our gardens we can provide food and homes for bees and other pollinators, as well as a place that we love to be in ourselves. That's what this site is about.
