Don’t step on a bee day

10th July 

Don’t Step on A Bee Day is an important reminder that the fate of not only us honeybees but more, so the bumble bee lies in the balance – with bee numbers in some countries having halved in the last decade.

We have seeked advice from our local garden centers and keen gardeners within our residents and staff as to which plants attract bees. Once this was established, we planted some of the bee’s favorite plants in our raised beds in our garden which included Strawberries, lavender, marigolds & fox gloves to try and attract them and continue the life cycle.
