The Pollinator Garden about flowers, pollinating insects, and gardening

Let's repay our debt to pollinators...

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.


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