Bee aware

Mar 18, 2012

My husband is a bee keeper and with every plant we buy or every seed we sow he takes the bee’s into account; will the bee’s like this? does it bloom early or late and do we have a good mix of early and late bloomers so the bee’s will have enough food this season? I want to go for pretty every now and again, but his argument against is always: “that’s no good for the bee’s” With the alarming decline of the worlds bee population and the lack of action the governments seem to take I tend to forget pretty and go for what the bee’s want. After all no bee no food, no food no we. http://natural-landscape-sculpture.blogspot.fr/2012/03/bee-aware.html here is what we do http://natural-landscape-sculpture.blogspot.fr/2012/03/bij-bel.html
