I'm a bumble bee fan, too. Last spring I planted a lavender hedge, partly to attract the bees, and waited for it to flower. When it did, it was a lovely sight to see many bees, each day, lazily buzzing from flower to flower, collecting their pollen.
It doesn't have to be a hedge, though, just plant a few lavenders in a border or a pot, sit back and wait!
