Poorer neighbourhoods better for bees
Gardens in poor neighbourhoods are better for bees than those in richer suburban areas, research has revealed.
The findings show suggest that the tendency to keep up appearances in richer neighbourhoods by carefully manicuring lawns and maintaining regimented flower beds may actually be hampering attempts to restore bee populations in the UK.
Researchers at Leeds University found that gardens in poorer neighbourhoods were visited by twice as many bees as those in richer areas.
