Helford’s Plot 17 May 2013

Helford Class have been busy this week planting seeds and small plants into their plot. We are looking forward to seeing our raised bed become full of colourful flowers to feed and attract insects.  Did you know? Bees see colours differently to us and blues and purples are especially bright to them.
Did you know? Different shaped flowers are important to bees as some have short tongues and some have really long ones, so some need tube shaped flowers and some need open ones.
Did you know? The more densely covered in flowers an area is the better it is for bumblebees. This is because more food is accessible and they are not having to travel so far to get it.
