Winter in the
Pollinator Friendly Garden

Some people may find the Pollinator Friendly Garden in Prestwood rather uninteresting at this time of year but,  look closely and you will find a lot of interesting colour.     

Gone are the bright reds and yellows of the summer flowers and the vivid greens of the foliage but these have been replaced by gold of the grasses flanking the entrance,  the bronze of the teazle heads and the dark browns of the old buddleia flowers.

Gardens don’t have to be made neat and tidy by cutting down all last season’s perennials; leaving some to die back naturally with the soil undisturbed provides habitats for many beneficial insects to over-winter.
