Wyevale Garden Centres focus on bees, children and grow your own this spring

Wyevale Garden Centres will run a series of special events in May and June focusing on teaching children aged from three to eight years of age about bees and pollination.

Through activities such as learning how to build a bee hotel, making honey biscuits and cake decorating in the 'buzzing bakery', Wyevale hopes its programme of events will teach youngsters when the bee season begins, which flowers attract bees and how the pollination process helps to make gardens beautiful.

Wyevale will also be running a grow your own campaign based on market research on gardeners’ behaviour with a new exclusive plant this spring and will launch a guide on getting your garden ready for the summer party season, fronted by Love Your Garden presenter Katie Rushworth.
