Herb Bed and Stream
Kitchen herbs, like rosemary, thyme, savoury and mint all produce flowers useful to pollinators, in fact, many of the fruits and vegetables that we might plant around our gardens can also support biodiversity. Apples, courgettes, pumpkins, cherries, currants, runner beans and tomatoes all create little sources of food for local pollinators. Local is actually a key word here as many wild bees only range from a few hundred meters to a few kilometers in search of food, so it’s important for us to ensure that there are little pockets dotted throughout the landscape. Vegetable gardens, allotments and even a few herb pots are a great way to bring a bit of nature into urban areas.
