A client, having read our mission statement, asked us to design/plant a pollinator border in her back garden. Hurrah, time to put into action our ethos, “out with the herbaceous border, in with the pollinator border!”
We spend a loving few hours planting a curvaceous succession of Red clover, Birds Foot Trefoil, Marjoram and Lesser Celandine around one side of her garden. All chosen for their wildlife-attracting, pollinating-providing, or simply beautiful-looking qualities, as well as providing low cover (as befits a border).
On another note, take a look at the picture of the great fun that was had at one of our ‘Dig it’ school gardening clubs this week, as the kids set up their own stall, giving away the produce that we had lovingly grown.
