The Wildlife Trusts have joined forces with The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to urge gardeners to do more to help protect bumblebees and solitary bees, heroes of the pollinator world.
We launched the campaign from the Centre for Wildlife Gardening on BBC Breakfast, with our ecologist Mike explaining how easy it is to do your bit for bees. Bees are under increasing pressure due to habitat loss, not just In the countryside but also in cities, as gardens are lost to decking, tarmac and brick.
In 2017, Wild About Gardens is calling on people to bee-friendly in their gardens throughout the year, with loads of ways to get involved while bees are out and about in the warmer months. We’ll then have a final week of celebration and observation during October. In the meantime, for more information on how to get your garden buzzing, visit the Wild About Gardens website, and download a wild bee action pack and do your bit for the bees!
