Spring is here – and so are the pollinators!
This walk will visit flowers of all shapes and sizes and explore the relationships between plants and the insects and animals who help pollinate their flowers. Much more than just the birds and the bees, plants have evolved an amazing number of strategies to lure - and sometimes reward - their pollinating partners.
Pollinators are keystone species and crucial to our ecosystem. Discover how we protect and care for our important pollinators in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and find out ways how you can attract them to your garden.
This walk will start from the Maiden Theatre with a morning tea and finish at The Calyx’s Love Your Nature
Exhibition. During the morning tea, you will have an opportunity to purchase a jar of honey from the Garden.
More about Royal Botanic Garden’s Honey
is collected from the Garden’s own hives. Our bees have access to a smorgasbord of different flowers, giving the honey an unrivalled flavour profile.
Because our bees have the pick of everything from native flowering trees to exotic flowers, it’s nothing like the honey you might get from a supermarket. This is 100% raw and unheated honey produced in partnership with The Urban Beehive.
The honey is only $15.50 a jar and the income generated from sales goes back into supporting the Botanic Gardens.
