Plant of the month

Hedera (Ivy)

Helix varieties are a good choice for the wildlife garden because they attract a large range of insects.

The leaves give shelter to overwintering butterflies and food for emerging caterpillars. The plant provides nesting sites for wrens, sparrows and blackbirds. The berries are eaten by resident birds and winter visitors. Autumn flowers supply nectar for hoverflies, holly blue and tortoiseshell butterflies.
