While native plants provide food for pollinators and should always be protected and planted, here in the Arboretum some of the plants introduced with their origins in far off places also have a valuable contribution to make to our native wildlife. Those shown at this station are a small sample, but other plants worthy of consideration are Daphne, Sarcococca (Sweet Box), Galanthus (Snowdrops), Primula (Primrose), Corylus (Hazel), Salix (Willow) and Cotoneaster to name but a few. The list is extensive so check out www.biodiversityireland.ie for more details.
