Bee & Butterfly Attracting
With the world’s bee, insect and butterfly population in serious decline Mr Fothergill’s is focused on producing products that will help increase their populations and keep them pollinating our crops far into the future.
As pollinators, bees, butterflies and insects play an essential role in our gardens. They transfer pollen from one flower to another, fertilising plants and seeds. 70 of the top 100 most popular food crops are pollinated by bees, and they pollinate 80% of all flowering plants on Earth!
Unfortunately, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects are under increasing threat due to pesticides, parasites and climate change – but we can help them by using responsible gardening practices, planting flowers to attract them and providing them with shelter.
Mr Fothergill's stocks a range of Bee, Butterfly and Insect attracting flower seeds, and has just added Bee and Butterfly houses to the range.
