The Bee Trail: What’s a bee’s favourite flower?
What is a bee’s favourite flower, and why should we care? Join us on our journey to answer this question, which might well save our wildlife and our food.
Many bees are at risk of disappearing forever, which affects the food we eat. In fact, bees contribute about £700 million to the UK economy alone.
That's because they - along with lots of other pollinators - are responsible for putting fruits and vegetables on the dinner table. Without the pollination that bees provide, our food choices would look pretty dull.
Perhaps one way to bolster their survival is to plant the right sources of pollen. But just what flowers do bees like the most? And how do we find them?
