What the book is about
Insects – bees, butterflies, moths, flies, wasps, and beetles – play a vital and irreplaceable role in pollination.
Yet many pollinators are in decline, and people are asking what can be done on an individual basis to help them. One answer is to grow pollinator-friendly plants in your garden.
This richly colour-illustrated book showcases a selection of plants which are not only attractive to pollinators, but are also garden-worthy, and suitable for an ‘average’ size of garden.
Information about the kinds of pollinators that can be found in a garden
Practical advice on what those pollinating insects need in terms of food and habitat, and what gardeners can do to aid their survival
An overview of the types of garden plants that can fulfil the insects’ needs
A series of plant lists covering more than 100 annuals and biennials, herbaceous perennials, shrubs, sub-shrubs and climbers, and trees
The cover illustration is by Emma Sutton who is the mastermind behind Mosney Mill.
She has also created four more beautiful illustrations for the book.
Some of the stunning photographs are by Kirsten Platt of Kirsten Platt Photography.
