We can all help,by planting an area with flowers and shrubs that are a good food
source for both butterflies and bumblebees! Even if you have a small, low maintenance
garden, large patio pots filled with plants like lavender and herbs are very pleasing
to look at and attractive to these beautiful insects. They also smell good too and
you can use them in the kitchen!
If you wish to plant a garden or bed for butterflies and bumblebees, try and plant
trees, flowers and shrubs that bloom in succession. This creates a long term display
for you and a continuous food supply for them!
Batsford Garden Centre, have kindly produced a list of plants, shrubs and trees for
the SVWAG, that are attractive to both Butterflies and Bumblebees. They are also
giving a 10% discount on all plants to our members!Terms and Conditions apply!

“WITH THE LOSS OF NEARLY ALL WILD FLOWER RICH MEADOWS, GARDENS HAVE BECOME A MAJOR
SOURCE OF NECTAR FOR BUTTERFLIES AND BUMBLEBEES!”
“MANY PEOPLE ARE NOW OPTING FOR LOW MAINTENANCE GARDENS WITH FEWER FLOWERING PLANTS,
SO THIS FOOD SOURCE IS ALSO DECLINING!”
