“At this time of year, bumblebee queens are a familiar sight foraging on spring flowers. After spending the winter hibernating, they need to build up vital energy stores before laying their eggs. According to the largest study of its kind, access to flower-rich habitats from spring through to summer is key to the survival of successive generations of the bees.”
We have created a simple visual, based on this article, for you to know which wild and garden plants are particularly important to get bumblebees’ colonies started in the spring and seeing them survive through to be successful into the next generation. Check it out!
