Pollination and Gardening
Creating an organic garden requires all aspects of the eco system. Pollination plays an imperative role to support the growth of plants and attract wildlife, birds, bees, and insects. To use pollination effectively you need to use plants that are colorful. Modern gardens use stone and hard landscaping features. This makes the garden less attractive for bees and other insects. Organic Wildlife gardening or synergistic planting is the ideal set up to support the pollination process.
The following plants attract bees and other insects to aid with pollination: Aster, Bergernia, Clematis, Echinacea, Impatiens, Tulips etc.
The following shrubs attract pollinators:
Hedra, Rosmarinus, Hebe, Buddleja, Euonymus, Lonicera, Rosmarinus, and Cotoneaster.
The aim is to design a garden with array of beautiful flowers and herbs. Pollination will take place and the ecosystem will be restored to its original state. Studies show that plants with taller stems that sway in the wind attracts more bees than flowers that are static and on the ground. Not many people know that bees are declining, and this can lead to environmental destruction. Bees play an essential part; because they pollinate crops and garden plants.
It is up to society to take responsibility. Understanding the ecosystem and cultivating an organic gardening method will give hope to the next generation. You can start small by selecting a space that is suitable for flowers. You can even opt for pot plants. Take a selection of the above flowers and build an oasis of color and fragrance. Add water features for example birdbaths to invite the pollinators into your organic garden.
