Gardening for the bees with The British Bee keepers Association.


We are working alongside the British Bee Keeping Association to encourage                    

the planting of a wide variety of flowering plants for the bees.

Bees among other pollinators play a vital role in our ecosystem, so by providing them with a feast of various plants they provide us not only with their delicious honey but pollinate our crops for tasty fruit and vegetables etc.




We can all play our role in this exercise by planting nectar and pollen rich flowers. These plants and flowers needn't take up huge amount of space. They can be planted in your garden, hanging baskets, window baskets or a huge variety of pots and containers.

We can all do our bit and enjoy a beautiful show of flowers and watch these busy bees working away,

so it's a win win situation all round.  For more information visit  The BBKA website

  • I am rather concerned that despite planting and having a wonderful show of a variety of very colourful and perfumed flowers in my borders, there has definitely been less bees about this year!

  • Following my last comment, we need the weather to sort itself out too. I have lost quite a few seedlings that would have been due to come into flower this month, due to the changeable weather.

  • Its getting sunny again. I hope people have thought ahead and planted some flowers for the bees and other pollinators.We will be sorry when they are gone, we just don't realize how important they are to the eco-system.

  • Great to see you guys making such an effort. I saw an article about Redrow and their Bee friendly sites which I know you have been involved in. We need far more people making a little effort and we could make a huge difference before it's too late. Well Done!
