PLANTING FOR THE BEES
Help us to help Bermudas Bees!
As residents and locals, we can all play a part in helping Bermudas bees to thrive. For those of us who enjoy gardening, we've complied a list of plants that the bees love, and are easy to manage. Whether its adding a few plants to your garden, or if you're putting in new trees or hedges, we should always strive to keep nectar and pollen sources in mind when making these decisions.
