I have a bit of a soft spot for bees. I’m a fan, you might say. That’s partly because of their vital role as pollinators, but also because I’m really partial to a spot of honey on toast.

So we do what we can to help? We’ve tried to choose for our (very small) garden a range of flowering plants that support our local bees. This sort of works, but the garden really is very small, and there’s a limit to what we can achieve.

But there is a bit more we can do. A few more pots along our north-facing wall, more flowers in the bed alongside the drive, and a bee home that’ll go up on a south-facing wall at some point. Advice on all this can be found here, and if you’re like to know more about the B-Line charity, which is building green corridors for pollinators across the UK, their website is packed with info.
