Planting with Bees (and Other Pollinators) in Mind

Planting with Bees (and Other Pollinators) in Mind

National Botanic Gardens, Saturday 23rd February 2019

No matter how small a space you may have to plant flowers, Mary Montaut aims to help you choose plants which will encourage both honey bees and wild pollinators to visit.

Mary will show how attracting bees and other pollinators to your garden will have the added benefit of increasing your yield of crops of soft and tree fruits too. Mary Montaut has been keeping honey bees in her garden in Wicklow for the past twenty years. Her passion for gardening began as a child when she was inspired by her favourite aunt who lived close to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. Mary is currently editor of An Beachaire, the Irish beekeeping journal.

All welcome, no booking necessary.

The National Biodiversity Conference

Dublin Castle

The National Biodiversity Conference: New Horizons for Nature. We are losing global biodiversity at a rate unprecedented in human history. In Ireland, many of our protected habitats are in poor condition and 14% of assessed species are thought to be endangered. The number of plants, insects, mammals and birds that are threatened or endangered is growing year-on-year. This matters for people as well as the planet. As the web of life breaks apart, the natural systems that give us food to eat, air to breathe and water to drink are increasingly vulnerable. Is that something we are prepared to a
