Bumblebees in our garden visit the wonderful Dusky Cranesbill (Geranium Phaeum in garden version) more than any other plant out at present. So easy to grow, the main Bumble Bees visiting today were the small Early Bumblebee and the lovely Carder Bee, the only common Bee you’ll see in the UK with a ginger thorax. Geranium Phaeum will grow almost anywhere, shade and sun, is easy to split- and Goldfinches will enjoy the seeds later in the year. Conditions: Cloudy with a breeze and some sun. Temperature: Max 18- Min 10c.
