Trying to get my head around the fact, I can go to any shop and buy Litres of the stuff any time i want... Probably seen half a dozen Bees in the last 2 years. How does that equate? Confused

I suppose it depends where the honey is made.

As for seeing bees try planting some plants that attract them.

Not sure what you mean by your first sentence.

Sorry, not in the mood for chess.

Not sure about the UK specifically, but China is the biggest supplier of honey to Europe as a whole. Since they are meant to adulterate their honey with sugar syrup even more often than others however, something some of the honeykeeper rich EU countries felt was unfair competition, the EU commission just recently announced that countries of origin will need to be declared more detailed in the future instead of just "EU", "non-EU", so that people can say no to possibly (likely?) adulterated Chinese honey.

Just an aside but if you have a small garden, seed some clovers (very cheap) and let patches grow to flowering height and see the bees return or maybe a buddleia shrub which though known for it's attraction to butterflys is also a very popular stop for bees as well...save the bees....innit Cool

Phacilia is the one bees go mad for but it's a double edged sword in that if you let it go to seed then it spreads and is hard to get rid of.

Foxgloves, hollyhox and lavender
are big favs for bees around here.

Clover a good shout, too.

Good thing about clover is it's perfect for a lazy gardener even if you've just got a half rsed patch of grass but might try a few of those mentioned above...

Once watched an educational video on growing avocados, avocado nectar is very bitter and bees don't like it much. So in order to attract the bees  to the flowers and so pollinate the plants, growers take a couple of spoon fulls of honey into a spray bottle topped up with water and they then spray all the flowers on the tree, works a treat. I assume something similar could be done with any plant

Not many clover flowers on my lawn this year
because of lack of rain.

My brother started keeping bees this year, I got a jar of honey in August. Borage is popular with bees, and is not an unattractive plant.
