Jordans cereal help save bees with their big buzz campaign
Browse main article categories
Recently, I wrote about the bee garden I was planting, here at Chez Green. Things are taking off slowly, with more bare soil and weeds than bee friendly plants at the moment, but all will be well.
I have thyme, catmint, sage, chives, lavender and some wild flower seedlings planted and I’ve spotted our first furry visitor having a browse around the lavender nectar already.
Yesterday, David North; editor of the wonderful Sustained magazine, told me about Jordan’s cereals ‘Big Buzz’ campaign.
Register with Jordan’s Big Buzz to earn yourself a buzz point. Collect 4 more by purchasing special packs of their breakfast cereals and cereal bars. Once you have 5 points, you can exchange them for a bee friendly plant such as rosemary or lavender!
Save the bees
Jordans recognise the importance bees have for the pollination of one third of the foods we eat. For many years their ‘nature-friendly’ Conservation Grade farmers have used 10% of their farmland to grow areas of wild flowers and clover, so that insects like bees have the right habitats to thrive.
To see where people have been planting their bee friendly plants and gardens across the UK, check out Jordans interactive map. If you need a little sweetness in your life, then take a look at their honey recipes and if you want some fun, why not send your friends a Bee Line? Both of you will be entered into a draw to win a Blooming Direct gift voucher.
