Learn how to make a Bee Hotel with Honda at RHS Hampton Court Flow Show 2019

Honda is passionate about protecting the environment for future generations and has recruited the help of wildlife author and presenter, Kate Bradbury, to be on the Honda Lawn & Garden stand at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show to educate visitors on looking after bees and how to make bee hotels.

 

The UK’s native wild bees including bumblebees and solitary bees are struggling. We have lost 97 percent of our wildflower meadows which are vital food sources for these precious creatures. Bees pollinate around one third of our food crops and are an essential part of the ecosystem, so action to help them is essential.

Kate will be showing visitors on the Honda stand how to make these safe refuges and nesting habitats for bees on the Tuesday and Friday of the show.  Visitors are encouraged to visit the stand throughout the day to meet Kate and get involved to watch and learn how to construct them at home.

 

Kate added; “I’m delighted to be working with Honda to help spread the word about bees and other pollinators. In my workshops, visitors will learn about the wonderful world of solitary bees and how to use and manage a bee hotel. Plus lots more about our precious pollinators.”

In addition, Honda Lawn & Garden will be giving away bee bombs to visitors who take part in the workshops.  These are packed with the seeds of nectar producing flowers that have been carefully selected to benefit bees.

 

Kate added; “I’m delighted to be working with Honda to help spread the word about bees and other pollinators. In my workshops, visitors will learn about the wonderful world of solitary bees and how to use and manage a bee hotel. Plus lots more about our precious pollinators.”

 

Steve Morris, Head of Power Products for Honda (UK) commented: “We’re delighted to have Kate with us at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show to provide an interactive and educational element to our stand. If you’re visiting the Show on the Tuesday or Friday please stop by and get involved.

“For those visiting on the other days, our stand is open throughout the show and you will be able to take a look at Honda’s extensive range of garden machinery including our pedestrian and Miimo robotic lawnmowers. We will also have our friendly Honda Lawn & Garden experts on hand to offer advice and answer any questions visitors may have.”
