Dobbies hosts World Bee Day virtual event with Neal’s Yard Remedies

Garden centre giant Dobbies is marking World Bee Day on 20 May with a virtual event hosted by natural and organic health and beauty company, Neal’s Yard Remedies.

Following on from the recent launch of its #sustainabledobbies campaign, Dobbies Garden Centres is teaming up with Neal’s Yard Remedies in this virtual event, to share top tips on making a garden a bee-friendly haven. Bees are one of the most vital elements of our eco-system, but with several species now in decline; World Bee Day serves as a timely reminder to celebrate their significance in our daily lives.

The virtual event will start at 7pm on 20 May, and will be hosted by Tipper Lewis, brand ambassador for Neal’s Yard Remedies. Tipper will provide attendees with top tips on the best blooms for bees, and share advice on how to maximise a garden’s ‘pollen power’.

Tipper will also introduce guests to Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Bee Lovely product range, which is crafted with ingredients such as honey and beeswax. Every purchase from the Bee Lovely collection helps to support bees across the world, with a percentage of each purchase donated to bee-friendly charities. Attendees will also be given the chance to experience the range for themselves too, with the opportunity to win one of five Bee Lovely ‘Head to Toe’ gift sets during the event.

Alongside this, Tipper will be on hand to answer any questions viewers may have, including advice on the best blooms and bushes to plant to attract bees, and how to ensure that gardening techniques are sustainable and bee-friendly at every turn.

Tipper Lewis said: “Bees are hugely vital to so many things in our daily lives, from the food we eat to the flowers in our gardens and even the skincare we use. The team at Neal’s Yard Remedies and I are very excited to share our knowledge, passion and love for bees of all kinds with Dobbies’ customers, and we hope they’ll enjoy learning more about them as we celebrate World Bee Day.”
