Bees are crucial members of our garden. As pollinators, they are indispensable for the survival of many plants and trees. Besides their environmental importance, bees also play a significant role in our economy. They pollinate crops that we use as food, such as fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Additionally, bees produce honey, a vital product used in the food and cosmetic industries. There are plenty of reasons to give these small insects a warm welcome in your garden.
As mentioned earlier, bees are crucial for pollinating plants and trees. Moreover, bees are attractive residents for your garden, as they also attract other birds and insects, contributing to increased biodiversity. Bees are fascinating insects, and observing them and learning about their life cycle and behavior can provide an educational experience for your children and deepen your understanding of bees.
Certain young trees specifically attract bees, such as (ornamental) apple trees, pear trees, and cherry trees. These trees produce nectar and pollen, attracting bees and enabling them to build their nests and feed young larvae. Other types of fruit trees are also popular among bees. Additionally, flower species like lavender, sage, and thyme are favorites of bees. Planting these trees and flowers in your garden can create a welcoming environment for bees, ensuring they feel at home and return for more.
