In Association With the Bumblebee Conservation Trust
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns about the ‘plight of the bumblebee’
Over the past century, our bumblebee populations have crashed. Two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically.
Bumblebees are familiar and much-loved insects that pollinate our crops and wildflowers, so people are rightly worried. Bumblebee Conservation Trust have a vision to create a world where bumblebees are thriving and valued. Their mission is to increase the number and distribution of bumblebees. A growing number of committed supporters are helping our team of staff make a big difference.
At the English Lawn Company, we support British wildlife, bumblebees might not be the first creatures that come to mind, but they play an essential role in the UK’s ecosystem. These fuzzy, flying insects are not only charming but also vital for the pollination of countless plants, including many of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy. Let’s dive into the world of bumblebees and explore why they are such a buzzworthy topic in the United Kingdom.
We plant nectar-rich flowers like lavender, heather, and foxgloves can provide these pollinators with the sustenance they need. Additionally, leaving a patch of your garden wild or planting wildflowers can provide bumblebees with a place to nest and forage.
