With bee populations on the decline it has never been more important for us, as a nation, to come together to help our bee friends survive. One company that is stepping up and taking responsibility for the long-term future of the bees is Beefayre, introducing the great ‘Seeds for Bees’ giveaway of 2018.
Beefayre, as its name suggests, is a company that holds bees very close to its heart. Using wholly natural ingredients to create a stunning collection of home and body care products, this year the company has teamed up with the UK’s leading seed supplier, Mr Fothergill’s, to offer thousands of free seed packets.
This year the ‘Seeds for Bees’ featured flowers will be the pollinator and bee friendly Sunflower, Snapdragon and Wildflowers. The Sunflower – the epitome of sunny days – is not only a major source of pollen for our bees but the spent heads are the perfect snack for birds in the autumn and winter. Snapdragons also release four times more fragrance, attracting bees from far and wide, whilst Wildflowers work to create a truly heavenly habitat for bees.
Sharon Jervis, founder of Beefayre, said: “The simple fact is that bee populations are on the decline. The long-term impact of this on all aspects of life is unimaginable. We are therefore trying to do everything we can to ensure that our nation’s bees have a future. The ‘Seeds for Bees’ giveaway is a simple way for anyone and everyone to get involved. By simply planting and tending to their ‘Seeds for Bees’ seeds – be that Sunflowers, Snapdragons or Wildflowers – they will be offering a much-needed source of pollen. Whether they are planted on a balcony in the city, or added to a country meadow – this one small act can make a huge difference.”
