Plans already underway for bee-friendly planting next spring

Summer may just have finished but plans are already underway for spring bulb planting in Lewes district.

Lewes District Council will work with contractor Burleys to plant a staggering 29,000 tulips and 4,000 crocuses that will be nectar rich for bees and other pollinators.

Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environmental Impact Councillor Isabelle Linington said: “It may seem early but it’s essential we plan properly to ensure that the emerging bees and butterflies will have a rich source of nectar when they need it most. The spring flowers will have a real impact on our wildlife and its survival.”
