Flowers need bumbles for pollination; Bumbles need flowers to provide nectar (energy for flight) and pollen (protein for their developing young); and Gardeners need both!
Why not join in a basic "hands-on" outdoor session to search for any bumbles foraging among the flowers at the Botanic Garden; identify the "regulars" and find out all about them and the plants that they need......then you will be able to check out those in your own garden.
