Notcutts garden centre in St Albans is encouraging children to spend their half term planting to attract bees and other wildlife.

With the help of Barry B Benson from the Bee Movie, kids can go on a special activity trail for free, where they will learn more about attracting wildlife.

The trail will be open throughout the May half-term holiday.

Notcutts’centre manager, Chris Holt, said: “Gardening is a fantastic hobby and we are buzzing with excitement to share our bee facts with children this half term.

“Creating a little space for bees in the garden is easy to do and can make a difference to our bee populations.”

As well as teaching visitors more about bees, the trail will also include a ‘Kids Go Free’ voucher to ‘DreamWorks Tours: Shrek’s Adventure’ in London.

The trail will be open between Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, June 4 at Notcutts St Albans.
