Bee's are in decline and have been disappearing since the late 1990's.
The main reasons for the bee's decline is down to a number of factors including industrial agriculture, parasites, more patio'd gardens and climate change.
Bee's play an important part in our eco systems. A third of all our food depends on their pollination! A world without pollinators would be devastating for food production.
Bee's are essential in pollinating the crops that form our food and also the wild plants that grow across the country and provide food for much of our wildlife. Without bees, the very fabric of our lives will change considerably.
These garden friend's need our help! How you may wonder? Simple.... Plant these and help save our bee's!
Even if you only have a small garden or patio, herbs can be grown in pots or buckets and are very easy to maintain.
