Why are bees in danger?

Bee numbers are falling across the globe. A new report has concluded that a widespread crash in pollinators across the UK is due to farming intensification and use of pesticides and well as climate impacts. 

We campaign for farming that supports our pollinators: protecting space for insects and wildlife, and helping more farmers go organic to reduce the use of pesticides.

Grow bee-friendly herbs and flowers

Herbs and flowers are a great way to attract bees and other pollinating insects, whether it’s a windowsill, a garden pot of an allotment. Plus, herbs are delicious for you and for the bees!

We've also highlighted the flowers which are native to the UK, as they are great at interacting with local biosystems and supporting local wildlife and insects.
