Jobs to do in the garden in July
Make way for bees
Clear the flightpath leading to your hives so that bees can move in and out freely. The effect of all this rain means that nectar-rich flowers are few and far between and honey bees will be doing their best to harvest the pollen so the last thing they need is to have to fight their way into the hive and risk losing their precious loads in the long grass. Visit the RHS website for a a list of wild flowers beloved by pollinators.
