A SOLIHULL garden centre is joining forces with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust this weekend, Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21, to raise awareness of the area’s declining bee populations and how important they are to gardeners and crop production.

Blooms Solihull Garden Centre, on Kenilworth Road is inviting people to get involved with its free Insect Weekend when it will be hosting displays, handing out complimentary children’s activity sheets and offering free advice about attracting, not just bees, but all friendly insects to gardens.

Paul Marsh said: “We’re supporting the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and helping raise awareness of its work because bees are the gardener’s best friend.

“Bees fly from flower to flower thus pollinating plants, which is essential for crop production, not just on a small scale in gardens but also on farms growing food to feed the nation.”
