After seeing a programme recently about declining bee populations and the effect this will have on the environment I started to sow flower seeds and planted shrubs that attract bees. I now have so many more bees in my garden. It is delightful to see the bees climbing into flowers with their backends barely visible and then emerging to find another flower to visit. I shall certainly take up Gardeners' World's wildlife plant offer this month. I may even try my hand at building a bee home.
