Join NZ Gardener's Plan Bee: register your bee-friendly garden on our map!

Let's get New Zealand buzzing!
Register where you planted the free bee-friendly wildflower seeds that came with your September NZ Gardener.

September is Bee Awareness Month and the country's biggest gardening magazine, NZ Gardener, is once again calling on Kiwis to sow more plants rich in the pollen and nectar that bees and other beneficial bugs need to survive. 

Every copy of the September issue of NZ Gardener comes with a free packet of bee-friendly wildflower seeds from our friends at Gardena. Just sow these seeds in your own garden, at your school or in your neighbourhood and then add your address to our interactive Plan Bee map. Once you have added your details, a little bee icon will pop up on the to mark your place.

Over the course of the month, we'll be able to see New Zealand becoming more friendly to bees and beneficial pollinators... one garden at a time! Enter your Plan Bee planting site now!
