Bees needs week; tongue talk

Firstly we will look at bees themselves as this is important so we know what bees need.

Do you know different species of bees have different sized tongues?

Yes that's a fact, a bees preference to a flower depends on the size of its tougue. Some bees have short tongues and prefer flowers like daisies and sunflowers and some have long tubular tongues and prefer honeysuckle and catmint.

Scent and colour is also important as this attracts them in the first place.

So what kind of plant or flowers do bees like?

Well apart from those mentioned above here are a few more you can add to your garden to bee more attractive.....

Lavender,

poppies,

many herb plants,

lilacs,

wisteria,

borage

black eyed Susan,

but also remember most garden centres label bee friendly plants to guide you to your beely heaven gardens ♥️🐝. We would love to see your bee friendly plants and gardens too so please feel free to share these in the comments 👇
