A few Wiggly tips and tricks, to help our buzzy-buddies:
– We sell Plug Mixes of plants that bees will love.
– Plant bee-friendly plants in our gardens, making sure we provide flowers at all times of the year, when the bees hatch or come out of hibernation in the spring, throughout the summer to feed
their colonies (or lay their eggs in the case of the solitary bees) and during the autumn so they can build up the reserves they need to survive the winter.
– Be as organic as we can possibly be(e), using companion planting, nematodes and nature to fight pests rather than sprays etc.
– Provide habitats for insects to lay their eggs or hibernate. There are some amazing-looking bug boxes available that will over-winter everything from solitary bees to ladybirds and even butterflies.
