Best Plants for Bees

 Thanks for the share Naomi,

I love a great share don't you?

 What are the best plants for bees?

What are the plants that bees love? And why should we care? Why should we make sure we plant bee friendly gardens? Because thanks to a mystery illness called Colony Collapse Disorder, they need all the help they can get.

Worldwide honeybee stocks have been waning since 2004 because of a puzzling illness scientists called Colony Collapse Disorder, which causes adult bees to inexplicably abandon their hives and their broods. However, bees also appear to be suffering from other ailments.

Colony Collapse Disorder has killed off the weakest colonies in recent years and parasites such as the varroa mite are threatening those that survived. Intensive farming techniques, pesticide drift and climate change are also being blamed for the sudden decline in the bee population. It could cause serious problems for agriculture and food production since bees are essential to pollinate many plants, including fruits and vegetables.

That is why we should care about attracting bees to our gardens!
