The Bee Bed at The Stirling Rugby Ground is going in as part of a wider initiative to make the club grounds as nature friendly as possible. The Grounds Convenor there, Lorne Boswell, has been working hard to improve the biodiversity at the grounds. He has been working with Treelink Stirling to plant trees and hedgerow species and with On the Verge to manage areas for wildflowers and of course with RePollinate to establish a Bee bed.
All of this should offer a range of diverse habitats and feeding areas to support a host of insect and mammal species including , of course, pollinators. It is also hoped to add in community growing areas in the form of raised beds in the future.

By August, the Bed had developed a lot of colour, with annuals doing particularly well. We hope the perennials will fill the gaps in year two. We suspect some of the plants have gone missing unfortunately
