Bumblebee, a collection full of character, inspired by Summer days in Sheila's Garden

 

Today is spring equinox in the Northern Hemisphere—the astronomical first day of spring—and Sheila is excited to be launching her new Great Yellow Bumblebee collection to celebrate!

Great Yellow Bumblebee NecklaceThe collection is designed to closely resemble the marking of the Great Yellow bumblebee, with its distinctive yellow tail. Take a look and browse the full range.

Our Support for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust

Throughout 2022 and until the end of March 2023, we donated 5%* from every Bumblebee piece sold to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. It was our hope that this would help with projects such as Saving the Great Yellow Bumblebee, a project dedicated to safeguarding the threatened population of one of Britain's rarest bumblebees. 

Great Yellow bumblebee (Bombus distinguendus) ©Pieter HaringsmaThe Great Yellow bumblebee (Bombus distinguendus), could once be found widespread throughout Great Britain. But in the last 50 years this has reduced to only five known population centres; Caithness, North West Sutherland, Orkney, Inner Hebrides, Outer Hebrides.

What you can do for the Bumblebees

Along with planting the wildflower seed mix, free with your bumblebee purchase, here are a few things you can do to create a more bee-friendly garden.

  • When cutting your grass, leave a small section to grow wild. This can allow ground-nesting bumblebees space to nest.
  • Plant at least two kinds of bee-friendly flowers for spring and summer.
  • Avoid using any pesticides in your garden.

Visit the Bumblebee Conservation Trust for more information on what you can do to help and encourage bees in your garden.

*5% of the nett purchase price (excluding VAT) was donated to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust from every piece of Bumblebee jewellery. This contribution continued until 31 March 2023.
