The seedsman pledged 25p to the organisation for every packet of its Mixed Bumblebee Friendly Flowers seed bought in the last year, and the company said it would continue its support through the 2016 season.
Lucy Rothstein, chief executive of the BBCT, recently received a cheque for £3009.08 from Johnsons' Helen Clayton. She said: "In the last 80 years bumblebee populations in the UKhave crashed, two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically. The donations we receive from Johnsons seeds through the sale of their bumblebee friendly flower seeds, directly support our conservation work, helping us to achieve our vision of creating communities and countryside rich in bumblebees and colourful wildflowers for everyone to enjoy. We would like to thank all Johnsons’ customers who are helping to save the sound of summer."
The contents of the Mixed Bumblebee Friendly Flowers comprise 25 annuals and perennials, the result of close co-operation between Johnsons and the BBCT.
