PLANTING FOR THE BEES

Help us to help Bermuda's bees!

As residents and locals, we can all play a part in helping Bermuda's 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 it's 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.
