Did you know there are over 260 different species of bee that live in the UK. We had a go at making our own bees.
All these bees have a very important job, while they are flying from flower to flower to collect nectar they also carry pollen with them. Without the bees pollinating the crops nearly 3/4 of our fruits and vegetables wouldn't grow.
So we'd like to help the bees, by planting an area of wildflowers for them. We've used a mixture of compost, clay and wild flower seeds to make some seed bombs. It was a fun and rather messy job mixing everything together and rolling it into balls. They need a bit of time to dry out now before they are ready for planting, but in a couple of weeks we'll be able to sow them ready to grow.
