How wonderful Geraldine to have room to keep bees.I have grass in my front garden - which gets narrower each year as I widen the flower border. I leave it long enough for the clover and daisies to grow. However,down the other side of my path is a strip owned by the council. Inspired by Sarah Raven's plants for pollinators programmes I've asked the council if I can sow suitable seeds in it. Still waiting to hear back, but if they don't reply maybe the odd open seed packet might fall out of my pocket. Must get that hole sown up some time!
Does anyone else find it difficult to find British honey in the shops? I refuse to buy honey from far-flung sources
