Bee Friendly

A brand new booklet to planting for pollinators has been released and it is brimful of great ideas and top tips.

Botanic Garden’s science team has provided expert advice for a booklet detailing some of the top plants for pollinators to guide growers on what to plant throughout the year.

There are also tips on grass cutting, containers, growing from seed, from cuttings, and advice on making new plants using techniques such as layering and division.
