One of the best ways you can help the bees isn't by being a beekeeper, it's by planting food for the bees! Claire Jones, a garden designer and beekeeper, joins me on the episode where we talk about what to plant for bees, why bees need flowers and which plants will help the bees the most. Claire also explains what grows well in containers, other places you can plant flowers other than your backyard and more.
