The importance of bees in ecosystems and to humans cannot be overstated. They are the most important pollinators and we rely on them to produce around a third of our food. Bee populations around the world are in decline due to a number of causes.
To help support bees, I am making our garden bee-friendly by planting lots of flowers that attract them. The flowers I am planting include: lavender, bishops flower, cornflower, monarda and coreopsis. I specifically chose these plants for their bee-supporting characteristics.
