Pollinators in the Orchard

Three Counties Traditional Orchard Project
Wednesday, 31st July 2019

Wade Muggleton from Three Counties Orchard Project explores the range of pollinators that can be found in an orchard.

He looks at the many different species found and why such a range is important for fruit tree pollination - it's not all down to the honey bee!

He also explains why old orchards often have the most diverse pollinator activity. To accompany this film a series of Orchard guidance sheets can be downloaded for free at: http://tctop.org.uk/improving/practical-resources/
