Transform Your Garden into a Bee Sanctuary

It's World Bee Day, a day to celebrate the incredible contribution these fuzzy friends make to our planet! Without them, our plates would look a lot less colourful and our diets a lot less nutritious.

Unfortunately, bee populations are declining worldwide. Habitat loss, pesticide use, and disease are all putting these vital insects at risk. But the good news is, there's plenty we can do to help!

Plant a Pollinator Haven

Consider switching from a manicured lawn to a wildflower one. We offer a fantastic selection of pre-seeded wildflower turf to transform your garden into a bee-friendly paradise!

Ditch The Chemicals

Pesticides and herbicides are harmful to bees and other beneficial insects. Opt for organic gardening methods and natural pest control solutions such as Eco Organic Compost for adding in nutrients and Woodland Garden Mulch to deter slugs.

Create a Bee Hotel

Solitary bees, which make up a large portion of bee species, don't live in hives. Offer them a cosy retreat by building or buying a bee hotel – a small structure with hollow stems or holes where they can lay their eggs. This could be a fun activity to do with your children during half term!

DIY Bee Bath

Like us, these insects need water to keep cool in the summer. A shallow dish filled with water and pebbles can be a lifesaver for thirsty bees. The pebbles provide a safe landing spot for them to drink without drowning.

By incorporating these simple practices, you can create a haven for bees and other pollinators in your own garden. Lets help our bees thrive!
