Gardening star Alys Fowler gives bee-friendly tips for your garden
Alys' top tips to stop the UK's bees from droppping like flies: 1. Plant nectar and pollen-rich flowers like Crimson clover. Good for bees and soil fertility. 2. Lacy phacelia is a green manure. Leave it to flower - bees love it. After flowering dig it into your soil to improve fertility. 3. Allow edibles like coriander and rocket to flower. The bees will pollinate them so that you can collect seed to sow for next year.
