“Pollination is vital for our food chains and of course, the longevity of our global bee population. It is encouraging to see such a thoughtful scheme that protects, preserves and honours our natural spaces and ecosystems.”

“No doubt, this award is in honour of Her Majesty’s passion for gardening and love for nature. What a fitting tribute to commemorate the life and service of the Queen.”
