Let’s give bees a chance

Populations of bumblebees are in dramatic decline. This is not only bad news for them but also threatens our wellbeing as the production of many staple food plants is heavily reliant on the pollinating activities of bees and other beneficial insects.

The Saron Project respects not only our historic legacy but also the natural environment. We intend, therefore, to make sure that Saron Memorial and Wildlife Garden will provide a good habitat for a wide variety of  insects including bees. This means that we will be encouraging and introducing a range of bee friendly plants such as Ajuga, Aquilegia, Campanula, Cotoneaster, Digitalis, Geranium robertianum, Geranium himalayense, Lavender, Lupinus, Papaver, Salvia, Stachys and Wisteria.

About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
