​Plants for Pollinators

​Plants for Pollinators

A few species of garden plants are not only highly attractive to us humans but also to pollinating insects too, as highlighted by The Level's gardener:

Catmint (Nepeta spp. e.g. x frassenii variety) – see picture above

Marjoram (Origanum vulgare) – a native wildflower of the Downs

Sage (Salvia spp. e.g. x sylvestris ‘caradonna’)

Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) – a particular favourite of bumble bees

Perennial wallflowers (Erisymum linifolium, e.g. Bowles Mauve var.)
