It’s late in the season, but the Bermondsey Street Bees are still bringing in nectar – thanks to the efforts of local urban gardeners like Ian Mould. Ian is head gardener at Potters Fields by Tower Bridge (ably assisted by Albert, his pug!) and he has planned in lots of sequential planting, prolonging the forage season.
Potters Fields is open 24 hours a day, hosts over 50 major events each year and still manages to dish up the sweet stuff for the Bermondsey Street Bees in late August, when most other nectar sources are tapped out.
Potters Fields may be in Boris Johnson’s City Hall back yard, but I like to think of it as Ian and Albert’s front room!
