The Plant Based Podcast Episode One - The Fascinating World Of The Bee
39:37

Bees are an incredibly important part of our day to day lives. As the world's most important pollinator of food crops, one third of the food we eat every day relies on bees but are we doing enough to help them in our gardens?

Beverley Glover of Cambridge Botanic Garden is on a quest to discover that plants that provide the most attractive colours, textures and shapes to bees. We find out which blooms are the best, and worst, at hosting that nectar buffet!

We are also surprised to find out how many different types of bees there are, and we ask that all-important question about wasps and their relevance to our gardens!

Do you consider bees when choosing plants for your garden? Let us know if this interview has made you re-think certain planting choices. Thanks to Beverley's comprehensive research, it will soon be possible to create a buzz with your planting, in whatever space you have.
