If bees die we die - help them in your garden by planting open single head flowers. Plant the same plants in clusters rather than peppered around the garden; plant for a succession of flowers throughout the year. Some good varieties include snowdrops, hollyhocks, foxgloves, forget-me-nots, borage, lavender, wild thyme, and buddleia. Let the clover grow in your lawn. If you have space for a wild patch bees also love dandelion and nettles.
