‘Do Bees Need Weeds?’ and Red Campion

This episode we chat about ‘Do Bees Need Weeds’, a fantastic book for the beginner wildlife gardener with 100 tips and tricks for your garden at home. We also host Red Campion as our ‘Native Plant of the Week’, a gorgeous blushing pink wildflower that brightens hedgerows and meadows from Land’s End to John o’ Groats.
