When it comes to providing vital nectar and pollen for bees, butterflies and other insects, every lawn is a potential feast for pollinators.
But the latest studies suggest that one-third of British wild bees and hoverflies are in decline.
That’s why for the next month, colleagues at Solihull, EMC and BAC will be locking up their lawnmowers for No Mow May: a national campaign to encourage people to let their lawns grow.
And we want you to get involved by letting the wildflowers bloom in your garden, too.
Throughout the month, we’ll be sharing your progress pictures to see how your garden habitats are getting on.
At the end of the month, we’ll be encouraging you to join in with the nationwide Every Flower Counts survey, where to get your very own “nectar score” and discover how many bees your new lawn can feed.
