More Than Honey

More Than Honey film poster

If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live.

Albert Einstein

We have spoken about our love for bees before – Claire has done two excellent posts on saving the bees and farming alternatives that don’t involve the use of neonicotinoid pesticide.

In addition to producing honey, bees are responsible for pollinating flowers. As it is described early on in the film, bees are helping flowers have procreate as, after all, flowers cannot just get up and mingle amongst each other themselves.

More Than Honey is a film created by Markus Imhoof and chronicles honeybee colonies in California, Switzerland, China and Australia. It talks about the problems facing modern bee-keeping and the loss of sometimes up to 90% of the bees in colonies – particularly disturbing as 80% of plant species require pollination.

The film opens in the UK later this year.

Modern warfare in the garden!

Get rid of moles with the solar moler from PrimroseWe use the independent review service Feefo for all of our sites. This helps us both in getting impartial reviews and product feedback from our customers.

Some of the reviews we have received are brilliant and highly unusual, such as this one from Jean about our advanced solar mole repeller:

All moles moved into my neighbour’s garden within a couple of days. Yay, what a result!!

Neighbour asked how I got rid of my moles because he was infested and I made the huge mistake of telling him about your fab product.

Result……he’s bought more repellers than me and the moles have returned to my garden. Booo. Am going to encourage them to move to my neighbours the other side and keep my mouth shut when he asks me how come this has happened!

A good product.

Have you had any problems like this with your neighbours?

Say no to itsy bitsy and not-so-itsy spiders!

Get rid of spiders

While you’re waiting for the repeller to work its magic you’ll probably be wanting to spend a little more time outdoors.

The long-term weather forecast promises above average temperatures – if you’re in the South or the Midlands, sorry to all Northerners – which will give us more wonderful hours in our gardens.

The Corpse Flower

Amorphophallus titanumOne of the latest additions to our range of plants, trees and bulbs is the amorphophallus konjac which belongs to the araceae family.

It is a unique plant in many ways – its looks are most certainly unique, but really it is known for its rather pungent smell.

We think it’s possibly the stinkiest flower we can grow in the UK and the smell – or perhaps that should be stench – has been compared to cheese, rotting fish, a sweet floral scent, mothballs, and several other equally pleasant smells.

Who would you gift this plant to?
