Without bees, almost all edible crops would be unpollinated – no fruits, no vegetables, no nuts. Many favourite garden flowers would go unpollinated too – no seeds for future plants. And no honey for our toast.
Help restore declining bee populations by finding a place for bee-friendly plants, in even the smallest of outdoor spaces.
Want to ditch the shovel and plant a garden? There's a surprising range of plants suited to clay soil, from groundcovers to feature trees. Many favourite native plants are ideal, they're naturally exposed to prolonged periods of rain followed by drought.
