I think everybody on the forum knows about the decline of our bees and most of us are doing our level best to help our little friends.
This year, I am planning a new border specifically with the bees in mind. I noticed just how many of them visited the same border last year as it was predominantly planted with Johnsons Blue so it gave me the idea.
I've divided it now to make space for single flowering plants which will give them a helping hand. I have some more hardy geraniums to go in and have started off Cosmos, Echinacea,Rudbeckia,Oriental poppy Dwarf Allegro and an annual that seems to have been forgotten as of late - Sweet Sultan (Amberboa Moschata )
I also have trellis panels at the back of this border so have sown Canary Creeper up to now and also have some single flowered Clematis .
I am really looking forward to this project and am looking forward to later on in the if everything goes to plan.
