Native plants alone may not be the best option for pollinating insects in UK gardens

New research identifies that a mix of plants from around the world may be the most effective way to sustain pollinators. The research reveals a mixture of native and non-native ornamental plants may provide the best resources for pollinating insects in gardens, as native plants aren’t always the first choice for pollinators visiting gardens. In addition, non-native plants can prolong the flowering season providing an additional food source.
