    advice on which flowers attract insects and if they are beneficial to the environment


    What flowers are best to attract bees and butterflies into my garden? Do you have tips/advice on how I should lay out these flowers and what colours they should have? Can I confirm that attracting insects to my garden is beneficial to them and to the ecological system in general? I want to play my part in helping out.

    "Great flower for attracting bees and other insects are wild flowers, sunflowers and lavender especially. Ask your local gardening centre which flower seeds they recommend and I’m sure they’d be happy to help.
    Good luck !"

    "Hi, below is a list of various plants and flowers that the insects live and can’t resist!

    Hellebores, lavender, geraniums, sedums, hollyhocks, sunflowers, honeysuckle, crocuses, foxgloves, hawthorn, bluebells, forget-me-nots, alliums, snapdragon, buddleia, mint, majoram, wisteria, iris.

    From this list you can choose a variety of colours and fragrances. They will love them all.
