VILLAGERS in Exminster can take part in a plant swap as part of plans to create a Nectar Highway for Bees.

Exminster Environment Group is behind the project to create as many bee ‘hotspots’ in the village as possible. 

Volunteers from the group want to encourage people to join in by planting pollinating flowers in public spaces and private gardens.

Tomorrow’s plant swap takes place at 10am outside Coffee On The Corner from 10am. 

Caroline Shezall, of the Environment Working Party, explained: ‘We have had some great success with all the donated seeds everyone has given us. 

‘So why not pop along on Thursday and pick up a plant. 

‘Remember all we ask is that in return for the plant we receive some more bee pollinating seeds or a small donation so we can purchase more seeds for next year.’

The group hopes the scheme will encourage people to ‘rehome’ flower seeds, even unwanted flower seeds hiding in a cupboard which have been forgotten.

The scheme was launched last year at the Environment Fair in the Victory Hall.
