Blooms for Bees

This is a partnership initiative to promote bee-friendly gardening, to engage the public to explore which bumblebees visit their gardens and allotments and discover which flowers are bumblebee favourites. Observations during this project, will help to develop a better understanding of which bumblebee species visit gardens and allotments and which flowers we should grow more of. This will then help to inform bee-friendly gardening such as our Bee kind tool or the RHS Perfect for Pollinators list.
