Nice to hear your bees are happy.

It's a good idea to plant things for pollinators. My logic is we've taken a fair amount at this point, and we should put in a bit of effort to keep our insect buddies happy.

You can learn about what pollinators are in your area and what they like. Everyone wins.

Might try some of these although maybe the best way to help bees is to plant heather.

Got a couple of these last week. Have you tried them?

Not yet am considering shelling out there are plenty of places I could throw them anyway even just into fields.

I got some great plant pots in lidl or aldi a year or two ago, with a reservoir and wick to draw up the water. I've been waiting and waiting for them to come back in, and they haven't, so I made my own a month ago and they work great. A sad, straggly geranium is creating new shoots from its woody-looking stem and a shop-bought basil is flourishing. The plants are much, much, much happier than when they were being watered top-down or sat in a saucer with no wick. I used a cord that was the handle of a free shopping bag, synthetic so it doesn't rot.
