Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ❀ How sweet it is~ creating a pollinating garden ❀ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ
Since plants that produce need pollination [some more than others], it's important to create a habitat that encourages the bees, butterflies & hummingbirds to frequent the garden!!
Remember, a small bird bath, or water is also important as the butterflies & hummingbirds enjoy a cool drink of water & will stick around longer if you make your garden attractive to them.
Also, different pollinators are lured by certain colored flowers. Mostly red, yellow, & orange, & purple will do the trick!! Hummingbirds prefer tubular flowers that will accomodate their beak, such as tullips; while others prefer the flat-er flowers, such as bees etc.
Just some thoughts. I found a great website that gives more detail. Happy Gardening!!
"About 80% of plant pollination requires the help of other living, moving creatures such as insects, birds, or bats, to transfer pollen from one plant to another."
