Growing plants for bees in your Melbourne backyard

If your child is worried about the future of the beloved bee here in Australia, they are not alone.



There has been concern for our beloved bees in recent months after it has been announced that bee populations are in trouble due to pesticides, habitat loss, climate change and disease.

Bees are the world's most important pollinator of food crops. They feed on nectar and pollen from flowering plants, which then fertilise crops for the cycle to continue.

With the worry that bees are in jeapody, and what will become of our plant life, now is a good a time as any to consider planting suitable bee-friendly plants for your backyard.

We've already covered ways to attract colourful birds to your suburban yard, so why not give the bees a chance while you're at it?

Let your little green thumbs get grubby and plant the following seeds so that you can attract and feed the beloved bee in your Melbourne backyard.

The following link details a very long list of plants are bee-friendly, as mentioned by Melbourne's very own Rooftop Honey business in the heart of the CBD.

There are seed packs available from Melbourne Rooftop Honey otherwise you can of course, head to your nearest garden centre to stock up on bee-friendly plant seeds.
