The factsheet provides a list of plants – together with tips on how and when to plant and care for them – that will encourage bees back into the garden.
The plants featured in the guide include: buddleja, cornflowers, corn poppies, flowering currants, foxgloves, heathers, honeysuckle, lamb's ear, lavender, sea holly, sedum and sunflowers.
The guide is available to download at www.plantforlife.info/bees
Garden retailers are encouraged to print them out and display next to bee-friendly plants such as lavender, corn poppies and sedum.
Tim Lovett, Director of Public Affairs at the British Beekeepers Association said: "The British Beekeepers Association was delighted to be able to assist the HTA in the preparation of their PlantforLife Bee Friendly campaign materials. The HTA is keen to encourage gardeners to help bees which are struggling against a number of problems and the advice the HTA has made available will make its own important contribution in the fight to help our bees."
