Pollinator-friendly Planting Cartwright Court 13/05/17

The Cardiff University grounds maintenance team began planting bee-friendly wildflower seeds five weeks ago. Since then the seeds have been gently sleeping in the ground, waiting for rain. Unfortunately they have had a long wait! Cardiff had a very dry few weeks. There was enough rain to wet the flowers’ heads, but not enough to give them a good drink.

That’s all changed with the wet week we’ve just had. The seeds are now finally germinating. But are they growing quickly enough?

Thank you for your bee sitings!

The site has proven to become very popular and through this we have learnt a lot about bees in Cardiff!
