Plant a bat feast

Photo Competition!

The RHS, Bat Conservation Trust and The Wildlife Trusts have joined forces to launch a new competition for the best insect-friendly plant display. We have fantastic prizes, including a bat detector, bat box and a visit from a bat enthusiast. Plant a bat feast competition runs until 21 October 2016.

It’s simple. Choose a gorgeous range of flowers and features that attract insects which in turn are food for bats - plant - watch them grow - send us a photo!

Find inspiration on which are the best insect-friendly plants on our ‘Stars of the Night’ guide (3MB pdf) , or use the RHS Perfect for Pollinators lists. Remember, it doesn’t matter how big or small your plant display is!

Here are some easy-to-grow examples:








Ox-eye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)








Bishop’s weed (Ammi majus)







Purple top (Verbena bonariensis)







Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia)







Hemp agrimony (Eupatorium cannabinum)








Hebe
