Sunday Snap: The Pollinators Are Finally Returning

June 16, 2013

As with many aspects of nature this year, the pollinators have been late arriving. I’m deliberately choosing to decorate our garden with flowers that will attract bees, butterflies and hoverflies and have included a Bees Banquet range of seeds in the Greenside Up Gift Cards.

If you love bees and would like to find out more about them, take a look at Bridget Strawbridge’s blog where she’s writing about the importance of biodiversity and especially bees (@BeeStrawbridge on twitter). Bridget is a passionate and knowledgeable advocate for our little friends and you’ll learn heaps from her.

It’s a joy to see our little friends back and buzzing around the garden again.
