Plants for your bees' sake
Calling all bee-friendly gardeners...
At the Bumblebee Conservation Trust we want to help everyone to garden in a bee-friendly way. That is why we are developing an all-singing, all-dancing interactive tool that will give people top tips for their garden.
Our team has come up with a list of bee-friendly flowers but we know that many of our supporters are also keen gardeners and love to watch bumblebees buzzing around.
It would really help us if you could share your wisdom by taking five minutes to answer our short survey. It simply asks about the flowers that bees love in your garden.
The survey is open until Friday 3 February.
Watch this space for more news about the tool in the coming months – we are all very excited about it!
