Things I have planted in my new garden to help the bees! Earth Day 2021
Since we moved into our new home in September 2020, and the previous owners didn’t seem to have a green thumb, we’re working with a relatively clean slate!
So with that being said, here are some things I have planted in my new garden to help the bees.
We all know how vital the bees are to our climate and can use all the help they can get!
Bees perceive colour differently to human eyes and purple is the most vibrant colour for them!
They love lavender, so I bought a lavender plant and some seeds which have just gone outside.
Now I can’t take credit for the honeysuckle in this house (we did plant a climbing honeysuckle in the old garden) but the bees do love it and it’s really thriving!
Not only are sweet peas gorgeous but bees love these too! Highly recommend sweet peas. I planted 2 different colours in March (a pale purple/blue and a vibrant “sunset” colour) which are starting to shoot.
Another bee favourite, my partner just planted my foxgloves for me which are starting to shoot too!
A beautiful flower that brings some colour to your garden.
Gladioli are beautiful border plants. None of mine have peaked their heads out yet, but I’m hopeful that some of my 20+ planted will come up!
This is really my first year of doing much in the garden so I am super excited for the colours to come out and the bees to buzz!
I hope you’ll all consider planting some of these plants (or others) for the bees in your garden. Big or small, anything to help the bees survive is worth doing.
