It is not just decorative flowers that the bees and pollinating insects adore. I have noticed that the simple nature of fruit and vegetable flowers are actually preferred. I saw lots of different types of bees and wasps on my blackberry flowers yesterday.
We must all encourage pollinators into our allotments and gardeners, perhaps you could leave a vegetable to go to seed for a few more weeks and it will flower. Have a look at the RHS scheme Perfect for Pollinators
to see other ways you can encourage beneficial insects to your patch.
Meanwhile elsewhere on the patch these Tayberries
are just ripening nicely. This is the first year for this new plant, A Tayberry
is a hybrid between a raspberry and a blackberry. The taste is exactly that! Quite nice.
And I'm not the only person who thinks they are quite nice....
