Gardens are important spaces that provide habitat for native bees and butterflies.
Local gardens with a variety of plants can provide nectar and pollen resources year round. This is particularly important in summer when natural open spaces may be depleted of suitable flowers.
Butterflies and bees are important as they pollinate gardens, horticultural crops and our bushland and native plants. They are also an important part of the food chain feeding birds, microbats, lizards, frogs and some mammals.
