Find out which flowers are good for bees!

 

Flowers such as Chamomile, Corn Cockle , Cornflower, Corn Marigold and Poppy are perfect pollinators, and by planting them you can help save the bees. Chamomile is a good example of simple native flower. Single row petal, in fact very like a strawberry flower, with pale outer petals and bright attractive centre head of yellow of florets, each containing a tiny amount of nectar for the honey bee or insect.

Bees need these type of flowers as a source of protein and carbohydrates; as they need the protein to grow properly. Green fields are “green deserts” for them, and honey bees and all insects need a variety of different foods. Suburban and urban areas can have more variety and give more honey than rural areas.
