Bees in September

Bees love phacelia and we are looking at ways of encouraging it to flower in September and October so that the bees can access food all through the autumn. Great to see the bumble bees still as busy. There is no shortage of bumble bees on our farm!

Flowers for bees and butterflies at the end of September
