Blooms for Bees

Blooms for Bees

Avoiding the temptation to tidy

As the flowers fade in the Blooms for Bees Border, they leave behind some beautiful dead stems and seed heads which we won’t be cutting back until well into spring. As well as looking delightful (especially in the frost), the dead material will protect the plants and provide habitat for hibernating invertebrates. Some of them will also provide a winter meal of seeds for birds.
