On Sunday 21 November, volunteers planted thousands of bulbs in the Nature Playground Hammenpoort on the Rotterdamseweg to support and increase the biodiversity of pollinating insects. The bulbs will produce daffodils, wild tulips, hyacinths, crocuses, snowdrops, bird’s milk, wood anemone and winter aconite next spring.
Bumble bee queens, which wake up from their winter sleep in early spring, will particularly benefit from this. (MvdV)
