Create a garden that is both beautiful and beneficial! Our gardens are important sources of food for our stripey little friends! So we want to make sure they have a happy home, our handy guide will help you attract Bees and other wildlife to your garden.
Firstly, it’s best to choose plants that are rich in nectar – nectar is sugar-rich and provides bees with their much needed energy! Many plants are pollinated by bees as they go from plant to plant, this means that they are fertilizing the plants. We would encourage you to pick plants that flower from Spring onwards to ensure that the bees get a continuous food supply which will provide proteins and fats to keep bees healthy!
When gardening try not to use chemicals in your garden indiscriminately, if you do need to use them, choose products which are advertised as bee-friendly and use on a calm evening, after dusk when fewer pollinating insects are about.
Lastly, bees are especially attracted to plants which are either blue, purple, white or yellow – bee-autiful! Here are some examples of the types of flowers that are great to help preserve the Bees and other wildlife, pop in store for more details!
