Something we are asked about a lot here at Green&Blue is 'what else can we do for the bees'. Customers have a Â bee brick, beepot or more and have put them in the garden but wonder what else they can do to make sure they're really pollinator friendly. One of the nicest tips we can give is that sometimes it's great to do nothing. A neat, tended lawn can be a thing of great beauty for you and I, for a spot of lunch or a bit of croquet but for pollinators it's yet another sign of disappearing habitat because well mown grass means that plants don't get a chance to flower and therefore seed. We're not saying never mow your lawn again but perhaps an area of the garden could be left to nature or just mown a little less often, it's amazing what a difference it could make for pollinators if we all did it and you could even turn it into a fun experiment, see what wildlife and insects appear in your 'wild garden'. Why not tie it in with the Great British Bee Count and see what you find? We'd love to hear from you if you do leave a patch to nature, do drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us an image on social media.
