planting a bee friendly garden
Bee expert – Benedict Hughes from The Practical Beekeeper – has a lot of great tips for keeping backyard bees and also simple planting guidelines for attracting these wonderful striped pollinators to your garden. Even if you’re not inclined at this stage to keep your own hives, there are a few things you might like to keep in mind when planting a garden to attract bees.
The main thing to keep in mind is that pesticides used in the cultivation of bulbs and plants sold in some nurseries can be a big problem for a lot of pollinators. Of course our wonderful CERES Nursery always stocks plants that are safe for bees!
