In addition to planting flowers for bees one more thing you can do to help them is to leave out a saucer of water to help replenish them during their long journeys in Summer!
1 Tree Cards have partnered with Eden Projects and have pledged to plant 1 tree with every card that they sell. The trees planted help to restore healthy forests where they’re needed the most. Trees are a vital lifeline not just in terms of controlling air pollution; they provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control erosion/flooding and help to replenish nutrients into depleted soil. This in turn increases crop yields creating more food and a boost in the local economy.
In addition to planting trees for each card sold, these beautiful cards contain a seed token for the receiver to plant and grow flowers for the bees. Towns and cities are becoming less bee friendly and the bee population is in decline. Bees play an extremely important role in maintaining our eco-system. By planting the seed token, you will be helping to feed our bee friends. Each token contains a mix of Sweet Alyssum, Baby’s Breath, Basil, Poppy, Black Eyed Susan and Marigold.
