Hi all, this is not a strictly gardening topic but if the mods don't mind there is now a significant push by EU legislators to ban the use of chemicals called 'neonics' that are proven to harm bee colonies to a point whereby the effect on food production is very real. This issue has been widely talked about on twitter in recent months, I think that is only fair that we are made aware of this issue too.

Please help sign a petition banning these chemicals, after all what's the garden like in the summertime without our lovely bees 😄

The Irish Biodiversity website is an excellent site at the moment they have some info on the Irish pollinator initiative.
