We should all be aware that our native bumblebees have been rapidly declining in recent years. These trusty pollinators play a vital roll in our wildlife so wouldn’t it would bee nice to give something back and turn around the trend?
The good news is we can all help the cause by introducing bee friendly plants into our gardens. We’ve listed some of our favourite nectar and pollen rich plants that bees just can’t resist. Luckily for us having a bee-friendly garden doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on beauty, quite the contrary, bees are especially attracted to colourful (they love purple) and strongly scented flowers and shrubs as well as lots of delicious herbs.
