Ben Hannah started this petition to Hampshire county council.

As we all know bees and other pollinators are in rapid decline. This is, in part due to lack of forage for the pollinators to feed on alone with mass use of pesticides in home gardens and on farms. Over time the roadsides have become much more managed and less and less native wildflowers are growing naturally. If Hampshire county council allow the planting of native wildflower seeds along roadsides it will not only create more forage for bees and butterflies but also cut down on maintenance required. Wildflower areas need very little tending compared to grass verges. Cutting and collecting grass less often alone would help wildflowers grow. If bees were to be wiped out some experts believe there would be catastrophic implications for humans. By doing something as simple as giving the verge areas back to nature a little Hampshire county council has the power to do their but to stop this.
