The Importance Of Wildflowers by Tilly

Wildflowers are not just pretty; they’re very important for nature

Whether they know it or not, all living creatures depend on flowers as part of the cycle of life

For example, they provide food to insects in the form of nectar, pollen, and leaves

The insects are then eaten by birds, mammals (such as bats), reptiles, and amphibians

That’s not all; wildflowers are a breeding ground for the insects to lay their eggs

In return, the insects pollinate the wildflowers and help spread their seeds

Creatures such as bees and butterflies would be extinct without wildflowers

Without bees people would have no food to eat as bees help our crops to grow

We should all help by planting wildflowers.
