Country Smallholding - - January News -

The idea fea­tures in a land­mark United Na­tions re­port aimed at pro­tect­ing bees – which are in­creas­ingly un­der threat. Sci­en­tists said plant­ing flow­ers along rail­way verges, power lines along­side canals, by the sides of roads and hedgerows would help al­low the bees to travel over a wider area.
