CREATING URBAN CITY CORRIDORS

We are working with our customers to introduce perennial plants onto their premises that have been highlighted by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) as being 'Plants for Pollinators'.

By utilising car park areas or outdoor land of all sizes, our customers are helping to create a 'rest area' in otherwise concrete environments for bees between green belts and domestic gardens.

ATTRACTING BEES TO URBAN AREAS

Bee hotels are designed to provide suitable nesting opportunities for aerial, cavity nesting species that would usually seek out old beetle holes in wood, other small, pre-existing tunnels or hollow plant stems.
