PLANTING KIT | BEE | MIXED FLOWERS FOR POLLINATORS
Help care for our bees and other pollinators - and add a splash of colourful florals to your home or garden - with this adorable grow it yourself set!
We need wild bees to pollinate our food. But a third of Ireland's 99 wild bee species are at risk of extinction...luckily, we can all help.
Green fields and manicured lawns are like a barren desert for bees...they need flowers, including hedge and tree flowers.
We can help by:
- Mowing grass less often - the whole lawn, or a pollinator strip down the side - until Sept (then mow and remove the cuttings);
- Allowing hedgerows to flower;
- Less / no pesticides;.
