I've been finding a few bees at the park today, to mark World Bee Day.
They love the big purple globe flowers that I think are allium but probably aren't. Sadly there are many other plants in the mini sconce that aren't bee friendly - the little multi coloured daisies just dont seem to be attractive to pollinators.
In this day and age, why would you not make sure pollinator friendly plants are seeded in a public park, especially one that has conservation rangers?
Indeed why don't councils make it compulsory for pollinator friendly plants to be placed in all public areas? Bees and butterflies need all the help we can get.
It beats hand pollinating on an industrial scale!
