I live in oxford and saw lots of bees round the apple tree flowers a few months ago.
Have loads of bee loving plants in flower at the moment but no bees in any numbers for the last few weeks.
Have some Vipers Burgloss in flower for weeks,bought specially from Ireland to encourage bees, but have not seen one bee on the flowers yet.
Lots of lavender just about to open their flowers so will wait to see if this bee magnet cures the missing little friends.
Be interested in how other parts of the uk are faring?Bee wise in numbers seen.
