Our Bees are in trouble. So what can we all do to help?
Most of us know about the honey bees but there are around 250 species in the UK. Most of them are solitary bees and they need food and shelter to survive.
Bees will emerge in the spring and will be in need of food. Here are a list of plants they would welcome.
Bluebells, Snowdrops, Hyacinths, Crocuses and Heather (these are just a selection, there are others)
Buy Organic bulbs that haven't been sprayed with insecticides.
You don't have to have a garden, even pots with plants in them on your window seal or outside your front door, all help in giving Bees a helping hand in Spring.
You can still plant bulbs in December for Spring 2018.
