To an extent any garden with flowering plants is a pollinator garden; yet pollinators are declining worldwide. Over 80 per cent of flowering plants need pollinators such as bees, birds, butterflies and other animals to develop seed or fruit to reproduce. Having available pollinators is as essential to most flowering plants as water, sunlight and good soil. In fact, most of the earth’s ecosystems including much of our food supply are dependent on pollinators. With hundreds of pollinator species on the verge of extinction, it’s imperative to provide extra support to pollinators to ensure they have the habitat they need.
