ATTRACT BEES, BUTTERFLIES AND FAIRY FRIENDS
Want to hear the flutter of tiny wings in your garden? Encourage all the creatures of the air, including fey friends, with some simple additions to your outdoor space.
What to do:
Bees, butterflies and other pollinators love certain flowers and herbs, so make a point of planting them, either in your garden or in pots if you don’t have the room. Lavender, rosemary, borage, hyacinth, foxgloves, cosmos, and crocus blooms are all good draws, but there are plenty of others to choose from, so do your homework! If you have the space, allow a small patch of wild grass and flowers to grow. Resist meddling and leave this area in the hands of Mother Nature. You’ll attract lots of wildlife, and the fairies will also be fans; they prefer less structured gardens with areas to roam. Windchimes and bells are a lovely addition to any outside space. The gentle sounds soothe the soul, and will also draw nature spirits.
