Bees in the Garden
Have you been wondering about where the bees are at the moment??? We've had MANY customers coming in worrying that they are not seeing any recently!!
Well... the reason is the full on HEAT we are experiencing. Once we reach over 35 degrees, the bees stop collecting Nectar/ Pollen and start collecting H2O. If you have no water around... they have probably gone to find some!
Bees use water to help cool down as well as cooling their hives. You can help keep bees cool by making sure there is ample water around your garden. Ideally a wide shallow container with the odd rock, fern-leaf or branch for them to perch on. Clean fresh water will help keep the bees cool and visiting your patch ! Make sure to have plenty of Summer flowering perennials ie: Agastaches, Salvias, Gauras and Echinaceas planted through your garden as they are full of pollen.
