We are delighted to be supporting Solitary Bee Week by helping to spread the word about the incredible diversity of bees which are native to the UK - there are over 240 in total and only one species, the honeybee, makes honey.
Obviously we love British honey and British honeybees but we also find all the other species of British bees fascinating and we think you'll love them too once you get to know them!
This week, the 9th to the 15th of July, is Bees Needs Week 2018, coordinated by Defra. It is a yearly spotlight on the food and housing needs of our bee species - of which there are approximately 220 different species in the UK! The week is just one part of a wider National Pollinator Strategy.
We caught up with bee-loving gardening author and TV presenter Sarah Raven to get her top tips on gardening for Bees Needs.
