Bee Friendly Gardener

BEE FRIENDLY GARDENER

If you have a garden you can help the bees in lots of different ways. We don't mean by becoming a bee keeper (that would be an entirely different quest), we mean by, well get going with these quests to find out! Bee numbers have been in drastic decline over the last few decades and no one is entirely sure why. The best guess it that there are multiple things going on that bee populations just can't cope with. These quests (along with some others) we hope will help redress the balance in the bees favour.
