All the tiny things 💚 Some flowers are just superstars in the garden as they attract such a diverse range of insects. When you look really close up you can see why. They are not just one flower but made up of hundreds of tiny flowers. I've been trying to photograph the tiny tiny insects that run our world. Echinacea palladia Centaurea pulcherrima Aquilegia longissima Jasione perennis Geum 'Bell Bank' The tiniest butterfly on Salvia jurisicii it is the size of the tip of my little finger. Here are a few plants that appeal to hoverflies, parasitic mini wasps, lacewings, ladybugs and bees. Achillea filipendulina, Achillea millefolium, Anthemis tinctoria are all perennial. But annuals Daucus carota (Queen Anne's Lace), and letting fennel and coriander flower will also work. I am just amazed at how quickly insects respond to spray free flowers and a modest bit of habitat.. #sprayfree #sprayfreegarden #banneonicotinoids #perennialflowers #perennialgarden #organicgardens #saveourinsects #plantingforpollinators #insectfriendly #insectdecline #permaculturegarden #beneficialinsects

I know, I tend to post lots of photos on sunny days. I love taking photos of the plants on days like today. I feel so energized just looking at them. Took me a while to water and aerate the soil for all of my plant babies today, including treating two plants for spider mites. But it's all worth the effort! I look at my plants and I feel a little more connected to nature. I will never understand people who don't care for plants inside their homes. I mean, no judgement, honestly. But how do they do it? I feel like I need my dose of GREEN every day or I start to go wonky. 🙃🍃💚 #sunnydays #africanviolets

Proyecto paisajista Belmond Palacio Nazarenas Hotel. Añadir elementos de forma secuencial a un pasillo ayuda a frenar la visual de manera que un corredor deja de ser solo un area de circulación y si estos elementos son maceteros con plantas atraerán aun mas la atención del usuario añadiendo belleza al espacio. Se colocaron macetas compuestas por herbáceas de flor y plantas de caída, de tal manera que puedan desbordarse a travez de los balaustres. Landscape project Belmond Palacio Nazarenas Hotel. Sequentially adding elements to a corridor helps to stop the visual, so that a corridor stops being just a circulation area and if these elements are pots with plants they will attract even more the attention of the user adding beauty to the space. Pots composed of perennial flowers and cascading plants were placed in such a way that they could overflow through the balusters. #belmondpalacionazarenashotel , #plazanazarenascusco , #proyectopaisajista , #landscapeproject , #jardin , #terraza , #macetas , #planters , #corridors , #pasillosconplantas , #elementosverdes , #verdevida , #paisajismopuro , #rafaelriveroterrypaisajista , #bellezaenunespacio , #garden , #hotelgardens , #jardinhotel , #cuscoperu , #herbaceas , #perennials , #balaustres , #perennialflowers , #terracegarden , #areasverdes , #fotodeldia , #picoftheday , #beautygarden , #balcony , #balcon ,

At end of the summer, the penstemon was cut back. After weeks of hot, dry sunshine it had become brown and crispy so was not looking good. At the beginning of autumn, I could see a few new green shoots appearing so was glad to think the drought had not killed it off altogether. What I didn’t expect was a new flush of flowers in November! I don’t know the name of this variety; it was given by a friend who took a cutting from her father’s garden so has always been known as ‘Janet’s Dad’s Penstemon’. #penstemon #hardyplants #beardtongues #perennials #penstemons #toughplants #latefloweringplants #perennialflowers #inmygarden #pinkflowers #novembergarden

Honeybee on Scabiosa columbaria 'Blue Note' This little unassuming perennial flowers from late spring right into autumn. It has lots of pollen and nectar.🐝🦋 It is a British wildflower with a broad appeal to bees, hoverflies and butterflies, also dead easy to grow. 👍Some ideas to ponder if you plan to give a pollinator garden a go. 🌸🐝🦋🐞 Insects like shelter from wind and full sun🍃☀️ Blues, purples, pinks and yellow single flowers appeal to pollinators. A variety of different shaped flowers and heights, helps create habitat and diversity. Bees like a bit of height, Hoverflies fly lower down. Butterflies like having something easy to land on. Insects need a varied diet too new research from Professor Simon Potts from Reading University (all his research is pretty fascinating) has discovered different sources of nectar helps bees immune systems. So a cottage garden assortment of flowers which began with people naturalising wildflowers in their vegetable gardens as they had uses and value or were beautiful was a strategy that had value for insect life too.🐝🐞🐛🐦🌸 Finally insects need safe access to water. I have a glazed bowl filled with marbles it creates little pockets of water safe for bees and safe around little people just placed inside the border.💦 I think I would add to this a variety of diverse root systems is a huge help to soil life. 💚 Great to know your favourite cottage garden flower? 💚🌱 #wildflowers #lovewildflowers #lovewildlife #pollinators #pollinatorfriendly #plantingforbees #beefood #pollinatorgarden #beefriendlyflowers #bee #scabiosa #perennialflowers #perfectforpollinators #sprayfreegarden #growmoreflowers #diversegardens #cottagegarden #nzgardening #saveourbees #banneonicotinoids

Repost @debbytenquist @debbytenquist has a really beautiful Instagram account btw 💚 These hollyhocks are growing in Morocco. Another waterwise pollinators dream plant.😍🐝🐝 Isn't this just stunning?? I love single Hollyhocks people complain about rust on their leaves but I've never had that problem. Mine grew in really bony soil at the back of the house near a hardscape almost in builders fill in baking sun and I didn't water them 👍 I want to naturalise them in the potager, a great open flower and lots of flowers per plant💚🐝🐝🐝 They look really good in a group too. Have you all had problems with rust on your Hollyhocks? #hollyhock #cottagegardenflowers #waterwiseplants #beefriendlyflowers #beefood #plantingforbees #saveourbees #plantmoreflowers #organicgardening #sprayfreegarden #banneonicotinoids #naturegardens #underthefloralspell #beautifulflowers #perennialflowers #plantmoreflowers #cottagegarden

Harlequin Ladybird larvae Harmonia axyridis This is not a great photo because it was raining at the time.🌧️ My Mother found these on her rose. About 20 and didn't know what they were??? After a quick call to MPI (who have given up halting their progress they are now so widespread), we squashed them. They are pretty easy to squash as they just hatch out and lollop about on the leaves. What an annoying pest they are to our bees and ladybirds. They predate on aphids but also eat our ladybugs and out compete them for food. 🐞☹️ Not only are they capable of swarming into homes and biting us, they do it to bee hives too. There are some good identification charts showing the different larvae stages. Know your enemy!! Mum has had lots of aphids on her roses this year so that's why she now has this insect. It is aphid season and aphids are attracted to stressed plants be it nutrition, wind stressed or lack of a regular soak. #harlequinladybird #saveourbees #nzgardens #nzgardening #organicgardens #sprayfreegarden #soillifesolutions #soilmicrobes #growgoodsoil #organicsolutions #perennialflowers #perennialgarden #nzpests #banneonicotinoids #naturefriendly

Garden Ramble I was selling plants today on a Garden Ramble. Here are some shots of some of the rather lovely perennials in the garden I was in. 1 Campanula perscifolia Blue Bells looking great in a drift. So many bumblebees all over it. Yes!!👍💚💚 2 Amazing aquilegia collection in this garden they brighten up the shady side of the property 3 More aquilegia 4 Campanula perscifolia Blue Bells again 5 OMG😍 The pink iris !!! 6 Always beautiful Foxglove Sutton's Apricot 7 Sheep. Maybe it's a kiwi thing but I adore sheep. They are so friendly and sweet. At one point one decided to race into the next field and hilariously they all got a huge sense of FOMO and all raced into the next field to see what was happening. Nothing was happening!!! Too funny. Hence the phrase following like sheep 🐑 In breaks between selling I patted them and we chatted about the importance of more time under trees in hot weather.👍💚 8 Aquilegia Clemiflora Alba I grew this from seed in autumn it's flowering for the first time. Gorgeous!! But also the pollen is very available👍🐝 9 The quite rare Campanula perscifolia 'Pride of Exmouth.' I don't usually do doubles but this one came into the collection as it is rare. In England it is a lovely dark blue but here it opens dark but fades very quickly in our harsh light. Lovely to see so many people keen to plant things to help our pollinators today. Nice one New Zealand👍💪🙏💚🐝 #everybodycanmakeadifference #gardenramble #perennialflowers #plantphotography #plantmoreflowers #saveourbees 🐝 #campanula #foxgloves #aquilegia #beefriendlyflowers #beefood #sheep #sheepfriends #lovelysheep #sprayfreegarden #pollinators #pollinatorparadise #pollinatorgarden #saveourinsects #saveourbumblebees #organicgardening #nzgardening #nzgardens #flowersofinsta

A cottage garden in early summer Russell lupins, felt -like grey furry leaves of cerise Lychnis, sky blue Myosotis alpestris (forget me not), iris and single David Austin roses just fading Black Knight delphiniums. Lime green Euphorbia with blue iris and frothy and ever so slightly invasive False Valerian (Centranthus ruber alba). If you keep Euphorbia and Centranthus under a tree or somewhere difficult they won't take over. They will seed around their bit of ground. Coming up are lots of Opium Poppies, Baptisa australis Wild blue Indigo, Gaura lindheimeri, Lupinus pilosus, Scabiosa atropurpurea Beaujolais Bonnet, Tall white foxgloves, Bishops Flower, Blue larkspur, Verbascum Violetta and Cosmos. Around it is clipped buxus. This garden doesn't get watered it doesn't need to be. Most of the plants are perennial and don't like too much water. There is plenty of rain in spring when they are growing most actively. They were autumn planted and established over winter. All the ground is covered. Classic cottage garden flowers but very insect friendly. I enjoyed watching all the insects. Bumblebees, Honeybees, Hoverflies, Monarch Butterfly 🦋 Ladybirds, and Lacewings. I love wildflower meadows but I have lots of space. This is great if you have less space but want an easy care pollinator garden. #perennialflowers #perennialplants #cottagegarden #oldfashionedplants #pollinators #beefriendlyflowers #pollinatorgarden #sprayfreegarden #diversegardens #organicgardens #wildflowers #plantmoreflowers #beefood #saveourinsects #saveourbees

Repost @miriamwildflr Wildflowers Do check out @miriamwildflr some really lovely combinations. So nice to see such beautiful plantings that are also really insect and pollinator friendly. In this video are the lilac spires of Agastache foeniculum the yellow thistle like flower is the 170cm tall Centaurea macrocephala, maybe red coreopsis and some lacy pink Valerian at the start. What a combo. Agastache foeniculium is a pollinators dream it's sugar content is 40%. I have planted my first herbaceous and wildflower pollinator border. It's based on the Blue border at Parnham House. The colour palate is restricted to Indigo blue, lilac and White shot through with dark crimson. It was quite a challenge to design as it has to look good year round. Luckily I had a few Head gardeners on hand to advise me and my Mum who has a great depth of plant knowledge. Looking forward to filming it and sharing it. Who else is planting a pollinator border this summer? #wildflowers #pollinators #perennialflowers #pollinatorgarden #pollinatorfriendly #organicgardening #saveourinsects #saveourbees #sprayfreegarden #banneonicotinoids #naturegardens #wildlifefriendlygardening #wildlifegarden #wildflowergarden #permaculturegarden #beefood #beefriendlygarden #naturefirst #wildgarden

New garden has no Bumblebees😥☹️ This image is my old Auckland garden👍🐝🐝 teeming with Bumblebees. I had a jet black Queen Bombus ruderatus nesting in the food forest. And lots of Bombus terrestris. Reason 10 years ago I planted 3 Tree Lucerne 🌳🌳🌳 ( Cytisus proliferus) they flower at that crucial time in early spring when Queens emerge and have lots of flowers. Here are some Bumblebee tips and information. I got these great facts from the #nzbumblebeeconservation website. A single Bumblebee can do the job of 50 honeybees. They can pollinate 450 flowers per hour🐝💪 They are specialized feeders and prefer perennial flowers like herbs and traditional cottage garden flowers. And they like large groups of one plant or drifts, because they like to stick to one particular flower. They don't like pesticides ....I mean who does????😕 They need a variety of different shaped flowers such as shallow bowl shaped, bell shaped, tubular and lipped shapes due to their differing tongue lengths. And alarmingly they are never more than 40 minutes away from starvation. Let's get planting....🌱👍💚🐝🐝🐝 Here are some favourite Bumblebee plant families.... Lamiaceae - Oregano, Lavender, Rosemary, Catmint, Agastache Boraginaceae- Pulmonaria, Comfrey, Cynoglossum, Honeywort, Borage Scrophulariaceae - Foxgloves, Veronica, Hebe, Linaria Dipsacaceae - Teasels, Scabiosa Asteracae - Thistle like flowers Cardoon, Knapweed, Asters, Goldenrod. Fabacae - Vetches, Clovers, Trefoils, Runner beans, Red Clover Rosaceae - Single Roses, Brambles, Raspberries Ericaceae - Blueberries Bumblebees need continuous forage from spring to autumn. Early flowering are pulmonaria, rosemary, then late spring are autumn planted Foxgloves, and Cynoglossum. Late flowering into autumn are asters. Another thing to consider is leaving a wild bit of garden undisturbed to allow nests. 👍🐝💚 Please let me know your favourite Bumblebee friendly plant? 🙏🐝🐝 #beefriendlyflowers #saveourbees #saveourbumblebees #bumblebee #bumblebeeflowers #nzbumblebeeconservationtrust #wildlifegarden #organicgardening #banneonicotinoids #perennialflowers #permaculturegarden #plantmoreflowers #foodforbees

Repost @debbytenquist Repost @landcrafte Bees loving Verbascum chaixii 'album' Often Verbascum can be a bit unreliable, because it likes very sharp free draining soil, (and New Zealand in particular has quite unrelentingly rain in the winter time). This one Verbascum chaixii album does seem to do very well. And it gently seeds around I have had success even in Auckland clay. Bee magnet☺️👍🐝🐝💚 Pollinators like clumps or drifts of things because that's how nature does things. #perfectforpollinators #beefriendlygarden #perennialflowers #permaculturegarden #saveourpollinators #beefriendlyflowers #saveourinsects #saveourbees #banneonicotinoids #beefood #organicgardening #sprayfreegardening #verbascumchaixiialbum #foodforbees #naturefirst #flowerphotography #naturegardens #wildlifegarden #wildflower

This lupin looks great with the irises. I love Lupins in the garden they are so insect friendly. Bees and bumblebees love their flowers, but also their leaves have a slightly furry surface and drops of water are caught and suspended which is great for thirsty insects. It also makes it a useful plant when it has finished flowering. Often if you see sleepy looking bees or bumblebees on hot days it can be caused by dehydration. It's tricky for lots of us to have water in the garden often it's space but also it's problematic when you have very young children. Having Lupins in the garden also fixes nitrogen which is great for greedy perennial flowers. I've had to soak my seeds in innoculant as my new garden was formally lawn and it just will not have the microbes necessary to fix nitrogen. I saw this particular colour combination in a book and I have recreated it in my garden. Both iris and Lupins stop flowering in late summer and will be replaced by annual larkspur and cosmos. Lupins are quite capable of flowering themselves to death. If you keep removing the spent flowers you prevent this for a few years anyway. #lupinflower #insectfriendly #wildflowergarden #feedthebees #perennialflowers #wildlifegarden #wildlifefriendlygardening #bluegarden #nzgardening #saveourinsects #saveourbees #permaculturegarden #organicgardening #sprayfreegarden #lupins #flowersforbees #plantmoreflowers #flowerphotography #flowerstagram

Some pollinator friendly flowers 🐝🐞 Here are a few plant families to consider planting this summer. They are easy to grow waterwise and very insect friendly. They are in order... Agastache Echinacea Teucrium hircanicum Verbascum Erysimum (Wallflower) Hesperis Foxglove Centaurea It's easy to focus on the honeybee, but these plants favour a wide range of pollinating insects, long and short tongued bumblebees, solitary bees, native bees and hoverflies. Many of these plants just are not readily for sale. If you are going to purchase them, check how they have been grown. It's not entirely the fault of the industry to use chemical rather than biological gardening methods if customers are not making the distinction. If the plants have been sprayed with a systemic pesticide, or grown from treated seed they are not going to be doing much favours for insects or wildlife. If they have been grown using salt based fertilizers they will harm soil life. Something to consider. Do you agree or disagree? I'd love to hear your thoughts☺️ Bty all these plants once you have them are enthusiastic self seeders so they can be shared with friends. #saveourinsects #saveourbees #perennialflowers #perfectforpollinators #beecomethechangenz #sprayfreegardening #organicgardening #banneonicotinoids #naturegardens #createyourownwildspaces
