192 MILLION SEEDS FOR HONEYBEES

Pollinator ‘patch planting’ by the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) creates a buzz this Summer

Earlier this year the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) secured 1000 kg of wild flower seeds to distribute to its members at its annual convention in Shropshire. Theses seeds were donated by Burts Bees, as part of its ‘BringBackTheBees’ campaign, approximately 192 million seeds have been specially selected to provide a pollen and nectar-rich diet for honeybees and other pollinators and comprise a wide mix of 26 different, predominantly wildflower varieties.

Burts Bees is a long term sponsor of the BBKA’s scheme Adopt a Beehive, which raises funds for applied  educational and environmental projects in support of honey bees.
