Leaving the grass long will help the bees ... dandelion and clover are great bee plants.
For the flower bombs you might consider phacelia .... often grown as a green manure so you can get a nice big packet of seeds for not much money
Also poppies ... poppy pollen is very attractive to honey bees ... and poached egg plants (Limnanthes douglassii) provide both nectar and pollen over a long season and will happily grow almost anywhere.
Having a pond is really good for bees as they need access to water ..
Good luck with the hives ... it's a great hobby.
Thanks Bee witched. That is great and most informative. You might not know that before I went away I spent my own time and cut the ground in the same afre for free.
I also had grass gutting contracts for some grave yards and parks before I left to go away. (I have a good reputation with these things)
Unfortunately leaving other people in charge has not worked out so good once I have got back.)
That is another matter.
I would like some help with bee plant seed for this. Please You know me by now!!!
Ought for nought or reusable is my way of think especially if I can share the results with you and show the results that can be obtained from such a small gesture, Then I'm sure you will be more than impressed with the results that I will obtain. The thanks and smile is for you after, but I get that same smile after. Thanks
