GARDENERS can find out more about helping pollinating insects such as bees and butterflies at an event starting next Saturday, July 16.

Bicester Avenue Garden Centre will host a free two-week Bee and Butterfly Festival to promote the importance of the friendly nectar-drinking insects, ending on Sunday, July 31.

Manager Adrian Drake said: “Without bees many arable and horticultural crops couldn’t produce a harvest, which would seriously affect our food supply.

“We will be highlighting bee and butterfly-friendly plants that help encourage pollinating insects into gardens.”
