solitary_bee_hive2Bees are wonderful creatures which we simply couldn’t live without they collect nectar from thousands of flowers in return pollinating them, much of our food either grown on a large scale or in the back garden needs Bees to pollinate their flowers to produce their crops: Tree fruits – Apples, Pears, Plums etc, Soft Fruits – Blackcurrants, Raspberries, Strawberries etc and Vegetables – Tomatoes, Peppers, Beans, Courgettes – plants that are not pollinated will not produce a crop.

Unfortunately Bees need our help and fast, in recent years the Honey Bee population has dropped by 30%, I cannot imagine a garden without that familiar buzz.There are a number of possible factors for the decline of our Bees: – Loss of Habitat, Shortage of Food, Pesticides and Disease.
