Attracting pollinating insects to your garden and supporting biodiversity does not have to be difficult. No matter how small or large your outdoor space is, you can play an active part in creating rich green corridors for wildlife in your local area.
Pollinating insects, which include bees, play an important part in creating rich ecosystems; as they help flowering plants reproduce by transferring pollen from one plant to another. By creating an environment rich in pollinator-friendly plants, you are literally ‘sowing the seeds’ for the expansion of a greener urban environment.
To make an environment that is attractive to pollinators, you just need to know which are the best plants to grow depending on the space you have available. At W6 Garden Centre, we have a diversity of plants to recommend and can happily advise on your selection.
Below is a starting list to select from but there are many more varieties in the garden centre.
Hammersmith & Fulham Rewilding Rave Campaign
We are excited to be working with Hammersmith and Fulham Council on their Rewilding Rave campaign, which is aimed on making green corridors for wildlife in the local area. The focus is on public areas in the borough, as well as encouraging local residents to get involved in creating more wildlife friendly gardens and green spaces in their homes, streets and workplaces. The Rewilding Rave campaign is part of a wider drive by Hammersmith an Fulham Council to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
‘Every space, no matter how small can make a difference and every small action can make an impact.’
