Helping our Bumblebees help us!

Another small step in our efforts to become more environmentally friendly

This year we will be introducing more areas on Sandgreen for wild flowers to grow like poppies, clamatis and clover.  We are doing this to try to encourage more bumblebees to pollinate.

Bees are some of the hardest working creatures on the plant and becuase of their labours we owe many thanks to this amazing, under appreciated insect.

Our lives and the world as a whole would be totally different if bees did not exist.  Bees are responsible for pollinating about 1/6th of the flowering plant species worldwide and approx 400 different agricultural plants.  Without pollination some plants cannot reproduce.  Without help, our everyday food supply would look much different, at least 1/3rd of our staples we have come to rely on would no longer be available.

Our team at Sandgreen think they deserve a bit of a break!
