3. Bee on Echinacea

Make your garden Bee-friendly, and save our precious pollinators. This week is ‘Bee’s needs week’ brought to you by the Bumblebee Conservation trust (link below). Your garden might already be bee-friendly – take part in a local or national pollinator monitoring scheme and find out.

4. Tree bumblebee on Astrantia

Want to update your bee identification skills? This week is ‘Bee’s needs week’ brought to you by the Bumblebee Conservation trust. I was able to correctly identify (I hope!) this bumblebee on the Trust’s website (link below).

I’m constantly learning more about nature and wildlife so I can give you the very best advice and help with your gardens. If you’d like to chat about making your garden wildlife-friendly, just get in touch.

5. Common Carder bumblebee on Geranium macrorrhizum

5 simple actions you can take to help bees – a taste below, and more on the Bumblebee conservation trust website.

1. Grow more flowers, shrubs & trees (variety and abundance!)

2. Let it grow wild (embrace the nettle!)

3. Cut grass less often (enjoy the long grass!)

4. Don’t disturb insect nests and hibernation spots (‘forget’ to tidy up!)

5. Think carefully about whether to use pesticides (Organic is good for you and your garden!)
