Urban home gardens are amazing nectar pantries for pollinating insects, University of Bristol study finds

Through an innovative methodology, the research project compared urban and rural nectar production, and identified concentrations thereof in city contexts.

Findings show that domestic and public gardens harbor 85% of sustenance for pollinators in urban areas, otherwise largely inhospitable to them.

The study thereby underlines the significant role urban dwellers/gardeners may play in supporting pollinators, notably by deciding to plant a diversity of flowers.
