By redesigning gardens to be bee-friendly and creating new bee gardens, we are setting a good example. Here we provide a home for wild bees and other pollinators. In our wild bee show gardens, visitors will find a wide range of ideas and help in making their own garden, balcony, terrace or windowsill bee-friendly.
What is currently happening in the wild bee garden
Since mid-October 2021, a mountain ash tree (Sorbus aucuparia) has beautified the red sandstone square in the wild bee garden. This tree species is one of the most important native woody plants: it provides food for a variety of animal species with its vitamin-rich berries.
We are also particularly proud of the newly planted herb spiral! It was recently created during a weekend project. In the next few weeks we will also be creating a garden pond. Details will follow shortly. All in all, we want to expand the wild bee garden from 500 to 1,000 square metres!
