About the Course

There is no doubt that our native pollinators are in decline, and honeybees are struggling with environmental pressures and intensive production. Beekeeping is not just about looking after our colonies, it is also about how we can use our knowledge to help all pollinators, and other wildlife while we are at it. Our gardens are increasingly becoming oases and it is possible to make a material difference, even on a small scale - and keep it beautiful.

We will cover the following topics:
- bees and plants: how they use each other
- best plants, and how to identify a good pollinator plant
- bug boxes, bee hotels and hibernacula
- adapting your garden to maximise wildlife potential
- the "June gap", nectar flow, and why bees need trees
