Description - Planting for Pollinators: Creating a Garden Haven by Ms Heather Angel

Planting for Pollinators is an easy-to-use gardening guide to help you encourage different types of insect pollinators into your garden.

Without bees, flies, hoverflies, butterflies, moths and beetles, some of our favourite foods would cease to exist. Insect pollinators are essential to our planet, but they also bring joy to our gardens.

Creating a habitat for insect pollinators is easy - you can start on a windowsill, or with some pots on your balcony. Planting for Pollinators features a wide-ranging selection of plants, with gardening advice for all types of outdoor space and seasons. Award-winning wildlife photographer and writer Heather Angel reveals how plants communicate with their pollinators and offers tips on watching foraging insects at work.

Planting to encourage insect pollinators is a fantastic first step in creating a wildlife-friendly garden, and this practical new guide – illustrated with brilliant original photographs and featuring 100 different plant species, including bulbs, annuals, perennials, shrubs and climbers – will help readers to discover first hand the short- and long-term benefits of having a variety of pollinators visit your garden.
