20 Alpines for Pollinators in 9cm pots
It has never been so important to get your garden buzzing and this collection shows that it doesn't matter how big your garden is, you can fit in those plants that will bring the important pollinating insects back into your garden. "Over the past 50 years declines have been noted in many groups of British insects, including butterflies, moths, hoverflies and bees". RHS, 2012.
Without them we would have limited flowers and fewer fruits and vegetables. Taking a step towards making your garden a haven for pollinators helps our biodiversity and reduces the decline in many of the valuable insects that is being observed.
In this collection, we have chosen 4 alpines that are very attractive to insects. Instead of big, showy, non-scented or double flowers, we have selected those that have open, accessible nectar/pollen sites with great landing platforms. We have selected 5 of each, rather than 20 different varieties as flowers clustered into clumps will attract more pollinators as the colour and scent will be stronger.
A sunny, sheltered site is recommended. Can be planted in patio pots, raised beds, rockeries, border edges, gravel gardens, betwen stepping stones or path edges. All plants will be in 9cm pots and ready for immediate planting.
Simply order, plant and relax to the sight of dancing butterflies and the soothing buzz of the pollinators.
