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.
