Wild flower and pollinator areas in Alexandra Park
We recognise that bees and other pollinating insects are in decline in the UK and Europe. We are committed to playing our part in helping them survive in Hastings and St Leonards.
In Alexandra Park we have allocated an area specifically for nectar rich flowers to attract and provide food for bees and other insects. We took an area of traditional lawn, dug it up, prepared the soil and have sown an annual seed mix every year.
Whilst these are not all native wild flowers, they do provide a rich source of nectar for endangered insects. Not only does it attract insects, but looks spectacular for people visiting the park.
