I would be pleased to hear from any readers who can suggest non-cultivar plants for a rather shaded garden, in the hope that butterflies and bees will become a less rare sight in my garden (I know they're declining, anyway ... very sad). A friend of a friend has advised against cultivars as they often produce an artificial nectar which deceives the butterflies and bees, and suggested I go for wild plants. My back garden is small and I can only grow in containers because of very poor soil. Many thanks.
