 The Bee friendly Garden 
     (Neil Lovesey)

 Did you know that there are 260  species of Bee in the UK? 
Without Bees (not just Honey Bees) and to lesser extent other pollinating insects the only food crops we would have would be those pollinated by the wind. 

It is said that 80% of the world's food supply depends on Bees.  How can we gardeners help?  Neil will tell us how Bees interact with our garden flowers and what the best flowers are to get the greatest number of bees in your garden.
