As the weather warms up bumble bees begin to emerge from their winter slumber. Dandelions are among the earliest Spring flowers and provide vital food for the bees. Please leave dandelions to flower as well as feeding the bees they are very pretty.
Sunflowers are not only beautiful plants, they can also help feed your local garden birds.
Try growing 1 or 2 in your garden, from a tiny seed, right the way through to a tall, swaying giant. Keep your eyes peeled for those hungry garden birds and write down all the species you can identify.
