Gemma's Gardening and Environmental Group and their new beehive feature on page 15 of yesterday's Independent HeraldThe article says:
"The group had spent some time discussing the location of the bee
house, making sure it would be somewhere out of the way, where there was plenty of space for planting bee-friendly plants."
"Olivia Bourne, 9, is a member of the group and explained that“leafcutter bees use leaves in their hives. They are very important for spreading pollen to plants and flowers.”"
Please don't hurt your eyes squinting at the blurry image above - you can read the article by following this link then clicking on the right to scroll through to page 15. You will probably also need to hit the enlarge button at the bottom of your screen. Alternatively, you can click the 'download' button in the top left corner of the screen to view it in PDF format - though you'll still need to scroll through to page 15.
