NATURE lovers interested in attracting bees and butterflies to their gardens can take part in an event raising awareness of pollinating insects.

Havant Garden Centre is hosting a Bee and Butterfly Festival from July 16 until July 31 to promote how important the insects are to the environment.

Gaynor Adamson, manager of Havant Garden Centre, in Bartons Road said: ‘Bees and butterflies are gardeners’ friends so we will be helping our visitors learn how to encourage these friendly insects into their gardens.

‘They are very important to gardeners because they feed on flower nectar and, as they feed, they transfer pollen on their bodies and legs.’
