Did you know that the number of bees is in decline?
One reason for this is that there are far fewer flowers than there once were and so there is far less nectar for the bees to feed on. Can you help to make your garden ‘bee friendly’ and so help to save the bees?
Collect some old lids from milk bottles or jars. Fill these with water and a teaspoon of sugar.
Finally try to find some shady spots to position the lids.
Fill a shallow container with pebbles. These provide the perfect landing pads for the bees. Pour water over the pebbles to create a refreshing watering station and bath for your bee visitors.
