• Wildflower meadow interview with Radio Leicester

    Earlier this month Bridget Blair from Radio Leicester interviewed Sharon regarding our wildflower meadow at Beefayre HQ. A hundred years ago, the British countryside was full of beautiful and colourful wildflower meadow.  But a staggering 97 per cent of them have disappeared since the 1930’s, that’s over 7.5 million acres of them. Download link to Radio interview The good news is you don’t necessarily need acres of garden to help plant up habitat.  You can create a really useful food source for all our pollinators by planting up pots on a veranda, or do some ‘guerrilla gardening’ and scatter wildflower seeds on scrappy ground, common areas and verges!  These plants thrive in the margins and don’t need nutrient rich soil or looking after.

  • 'Ornamental plants on sale to the public are a significant source of pesticide residues with implications for the health of pollinating insects' Use your buying power to good influence!

    Dave Goulson (British biologist, conservationist, and Professor of Biology (Evolution, Behaviour and Environment) at the University of Sussex) has just completed an accepted paper that highlights the bee killing pesticides in the plants bought from many garden centres. This was a research paper that Beefayre customers helped fund.  Each year we donate 3% of our profits to various bee conservation initiatives in the UK.
