Bees are important indicators for the health of the environment. When something is wrong with our bees, something is wrong in the environment!
Bees are having a hard time, but we can all do our bit to help save the bees. You do not need to become a beekeeper. Indeed, many other pollinators (not just honey bees) are in serious decline too. For example, in some countries, like the UK, some bumblebee species have gone extinct already. Many butterfly species are also struggling.
Here is a list of garden plants for bees that provide forage for at least one species of bee. Many of these plants will attract honey bees and different types of bumblebees and solitary bees.
Most people can accommodate at least a few of these flowers to attract bees and butterflies into their gardens, even if only in pots.
