The bumblebee conservation trust
As a gardening business, we find ourselves in a privileged position where we can really make a difference in issues such as bee number decline. Being in contact with so many people who have gardens, we have the wonderful opportunity to promote new plantings of bee attracting plants into the urban gardens of London. There is virtually no design that cannot include this. From open beds to containers, there are plenty of choices - we have even compiled our top 10 bee attracting plants blog post for you if you wanted to introduce some into your garden as your first push to aid this worthy cause. An environmental concern such as this has a long road to recovery, but if with every opportunity, we are able introduce these plants into all new planting design, we are doing our part to progressively increase the numbers. Of course, we need to be conscious of the flip side and make sure we are adopting an approach to our gardening practices that does not damage their habitats or endanger their lives, such as using chemicals that contain neonicotinoids which affects their nervous system causing paralysis and finally death. It’s a change of thought processes and working practices that will give us the edge we need to make a difference.
