We know that many garden plants are vitally important to bees, butterflies and moths. The Perfect for Pollinators lists are great for finding wildflowers and garden plants that are rich in nectar and pollen. The RHS and the University of Bristol want to go further and identify which are the most commonly used pollinator-friendly plants. Help them by taking part in the online survey.
