English Woodlands are helping their customers get more pro-active halting bee decline this summer.
(PRWEB UK) 30 August 2013
While individuals may differ dramatically in their love for, or aversion to, bees, it’s impossible to deny their importance within the earth’s ecosystem. They serve as pollinators for the majority of fruits and many vegetables, yet the global population is currently affected by rapid, and worrying, declines.
It’s for this reason that English Woodlands are looking to help their customers get more pro-active this summer and in the future, with the release of a brand-new advice series covering the importance of halting this decline, and how regular buyers can attract bees to their own gardens through design and planting choice.
So far the series features two parts, with the intention of adding more at a later date. Visitors can first read 'Why and How to encourage Bees into the Garden?', a post covering the environmental benefits of supporting local bee populations, along with an introduction to plant choice and garden design. Readers can learn why bees prefer single rather than double flowers, and why it’s important to prolong the flowering season through attentive plant selection, and the aesthetic benefits this can carry for the garden as a whole.
The second post covers 'Why Lime Trees are good for Bees', discussing three particular varieties of the Tilia species. Two variants of Tilia cordata, the Small Leaved Lime and ‘Greenspire’, are covered due to their long lifespans, highly tolerant and low maintenance characters, and the pale, yellow, and sweetly-scented flowers which display throughout June and July. The post also covers Tilia platyphyllos, the Large Leaved Lime, a more delicate specimen with larger, heart-shaped leaves, which performs well as a screening plant.
English Woodlands have been operating since 1919, and now stand as one of the leading suppliers of trees, plants, and planting accessories in the UK. Supplying trade professionals and enthusiast consumers alike, the company have maintained their influential standing through commitment to customer care and empowerment, always available to discuss plant choice and planting advice across the phone, and publishing a wide range of informative materials online. The new series is only a small part of their expanding collection, which will continue to be added to in later months.
