|English Ivy (Hedera Glacier) - birds love nesting in it, and because it flowers in autumn, it's a great food source for honey bees and Red Admiral butterflies too.|
|Native Honeysuckle (Lonicera Periclymenum) - honeysuckle attracts lots of insects that birds like to eat. It's especially good for Bluetits as well, because they can nest in the dense bits.|
|Winter-Flowering Honeysuckle (Lonicera Fragantissima) - perfect for birds to make their nests in, and good for attracting insects (in case the birds need an autumn snack).|
Our next gardening club session on Saturday 26 May will be for the butterflies! And we'll be planting native bluebells too to help save them from extinction. So join us on the meadow on Saturday from 12pm-2pm - free drinks and snacks will be provided. See you then!
