Seren - my bees (red bottomed and white bottomed) really like blue / purple plants. Borage is good but unruly. Purple lavenders and clover are very popular. As I understand it - the more vibrant the flower colour, the 'louder' the message is to bees.
Thanks for the heads-up about coffee grouts. I throw mine on the garden every day but didn't know they helped with slugs. I have an awful slug problem (oo-er ). They keep eating the purple flowers that belong to my bees!! Where do I get copper tape?
Glad your neck is improving Mrs F. 10 days is a long time to suffer with it though. You must be exhausted. Hope the chiropractor helps.
Your bees are a bit late aren't they Seren? I have a couple of bee nests in my garden - I love them! I've done a lot of colour planting for them this year and am 'cultivating' a wild patch for next year.
Well done for your recent Lakeland Dave. How long are you retired for?
