Attract bees and butterflies to your garden.

Cottage gardens, natural gardens and eco-gardens are ultimate places to attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, insects, birds and other animals.
The current low level of biodiversity is an increasing problem worldwide, and that is why planning space for pesticide-free flower bulbs, perennials and seeds in your garden is more important than ever.

Tips for attracting pollinators to your garden

In addition to flowers and perennials, there are various other ways to attract pollinators to your garden. Below some additional tips.

  • Buy organic and pesticide-free plants that are eco-friendly grown. Cheap plants contain often lots of toxins that kills bees and other important pollinators.
  • Put as many flowers and as many plant species as possible in your garden. Every butterfly and bee has its own preference.
  • Preferably choose native plant species and flowers that contain a lot of nectar.
  • Place as many flowers as possible together in a border, so that bees and butterflies have to travel short distances.
  • Use as few toxins as possible in the garden.
  • Buy an insect hotel or make one yourself.
  • Leave some weeds between your pavement, bees like to nest there.
  • Make sure you have plants that bloom for as long as possible (from April to September).
