Hope somebody can help. On my allotment plot, I have a small fruit area which contains a plum tree, a greengage tree and a number of small bushes for raspberries, blackcurrants, etc. In the middle I want to plant a suitable shrub to attract pollinators - can anyone suggest the best plant/bush to attract the little dears ? Many thanks

I think with that lot the bees/ pollinators will beat a path to your trees.

Pollination of fruit trees depends on having compatible trees of the same sort nearby.  They are probably there already on other plots or in nearby gardens.

Sow some wildflower seeds in a corner, you probably won't need them but it won't hurt.
