Bring life to your garden this spring by filling it with flowering plants of different shapes and sizes. You’ll be rewarded by a happy hum as insects gather nectar and pollen. Pollinators have an important role in our gardens and countryside, but they are in decline. So provide a floral haven and take pride in the difference you are making.
