What to plant for wildlife

A year-round approach for wildlife

By taking a year-round approach, you can create a wildlife-friendly garden that provides consistent resources throughout the seasons for wildlife. It is important to carefully choose a wide variety of plants that will provide resources such as food, shelter, and nectar at different times of the year.

By carefully planning your garden, you can create a continuous and reliable source of food and shelter for the local wildlife throughout the year.

Of course, if you don’t want to go to the effort of curating such a comprehensive wildlife-friendly garden, there is another excellent option – planting a bee and butterfly mix. This stunning combination of annual and perennial flowers is specifically designed to maximise nectar for pollinators.


In early spring, varieties like pansies or crocus provide vital nectar for emerging pollinators after dormancy, such as bees and butterflies.
