The Humble Bumblebee Part 323/07/2014

What should I plant?

Double flowers are of little use to bees, so singles flowers such as dahlias are popular with many bees. Furthermore, bees can see purple more clearly than any other colour, so flowers such as lavender, alliums, buddleja and catmint are ideal! Finally, species such as foxgloves, honeysuckle, penstemons and snapdragons, which are tubular-shaped are a delicacy for long-tongued bees such as the garden bumblebee.

You can also try the following at different times of the year to attract more bumblebees into your garden:

Spring flowers

Bluebell, bugle, crab apple, daffodil, flowering cherry and currant, forget-me-not (Myosotis), hawthorn, pulmonaria, rhododendron, rosemary, thrift (Armeria maritima) and viburnum.

Early-summer flowers

Aquilegia, astilbe, campanula, comfrey, delphinium, everlasting sweet pea (Lathyrus latifolius), fennel, foxglove, hardy geranium, potentilla, snapdragon, stachys, teasel, thyme, verbascum.

Late-summer flowers

Angelica, aster, buddleja, cardoon, cornflower (Centaurea), dahlia (single-flowered), eryngium (sea holly), fuchsia, globe thistle (Echinops), heather, ivy, lavender, penstemon, scabious, sedum, Verbena bonariensis.

What can we do?

Bees need wild flowers in order to reproduce, so the most important thing you can do in your own community is to plant some bee-friendly plants! Our gardens cover over one million acres across the UK, imagine the impact if we all planted just a small patch of wild flowers for the local bee population.

As a rough guide, bee-friendly flowers that are rich in pollen and nectar will make sure that bees have a good supply for pollen at all of the crucial times of the year

• When the queens are establishing nests.
• When nests are growing.
• When nests are producing new queens and males.
• When queens are fattening up ready for hibernation.




The Humble Bumble Bee23/07/2014

The bumblebee is a familiar insect, often found in the mind’s eye when imagining a beautiful meadow or wild flower garden. Unfortunately though, our bumblebees have been in decline since the 1940s due to changes in agricultural practices, which has largely removed flowers from the landscape. This leaves our beloved bees little to feed upon, in fact two species of bees have become extinct in the UK over the last 75 years!

This causes problems not for bees alone, but for us in terms of food production, since bees are essential in pollinating many plants. Astonishingly, insects are estimated to contribute over £400m per annum to the UK economy through the pollination of commercial crops.
