Although a lot of gardeners do like a shor t, wellmaintained lawn and weed-free gardens, embracing a little bit of your wild side will do a lot to encourage bees to drop in. Dandelions and clover are ver y attractive to bees and longer grass will give them the coverage to go about their business safely and securely. You don’t have to let the whole garden go wild, just a spot or two will do. A corner planted with wild flowers that are local to your area could also become a ver y happy bee place. Even if you only have a small garden or no garden at all, a few pots of wild flowers and grasses will ensure you are cultivating a paradise for bees.
