Why Bumblebees need wildflowers

Learn about bumblebees and what food they love!

Like us, bumblebees need food to help them grow. This resource teaches you more about what bumblebees need to survive and how you can help them.

As well as some fun facts, there are bumblebee themed activities and advice on how to grow herbs.

More info!

We have a number of resources to help you learn more about how you can provide food for bees (and other insects) by growing on your patch:

  • If you would like advice on gardening for bumblebees check out this great resource by Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
  • Taking cuttings of your existing plants is an easy and affordable way to increase the nature in your home.  This activity shows you how to take a cutting from a herb plant and grow a brand new plant!
