Bees are disappearing at an alarming rate. A recent study showed that a quarter of all known bee species haven’t been seen in 30 years. The bees that are left have had their work cut out for them, pollinating over 5,000 plants every day of their lives. Phew.

As flower fans we wanted to shout about the plight of bees, to raise awareness of how vital they are and to encourage everyone to take steps to protect them. So naturally we thought – a bumblebee retirement home!
