The decline of the bee population in recent decades has been one of nature’s harshest realities and one that is destined to have a profound effect on all life on earth. Bees, along with other pollinators, are vital to most of the world’s food crops. Without them, ecosystems across the globe would fail to survive such is the importance of pollinators to food production. With the effects of climate change intensifying and pesticides still widely used, the bee population is running out of time to fight back.
So, what can be done about this? Well, as any avid gardener would tell you, the best way to protect endangered wildlife is to provide an environment in which they can thrive and most importantly, survive. Bees are pollinators, so their natural instinct is to move pollen from one flower to the next. By planting an array of flowers free of harmful pesticides, these bees will be free to do what they do best in an environment that will allow them to thrive in large numbers. Furthermore, with the installation of a Soaker Hose irrigation along raised beds, fruit trees and hedges, your garden is sure to be a colourful haven ready for the bees and other pollinators this Summer!
