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 wildflowers are growing naturally. If Surrey county council allow the planting of 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. 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 Surrey county council has the power to do their bit to stop this. 
 
 Bring beauty back to Britain.
