Why not plan a small area for cutting flowers? Not only will it attract pollinators, it will also create a patchwork of colour and flowers for cutting and displaying in your home.
All you need is a small area of bare soil where you can plant seedlings in neat rows. Seeds can be planted directly into the soil from the end of April. Once established in June/July, the more you cut, the more flowers will grow and therefore even more pollinators!
Take a look at the patchwork of flowers I am currently growing, they include:
- Salvias & Calendulas
If you need help creating your own patchwork, or would like to purchase either seeds or my own range of potted cutting flowers, ready to plant out in May, please do get in touch.
