Biodiversity at ABZ Seeds
At ABZ Seeds we do more than just breed strawberries. We also have a warm heart for nature.
This spring we sowed a bee-friendly flower mixture at our Holland Strawberry House. This beautiful flower meadow with, among other things, sunflowers, Phacelia and Borage, has already attracted the attention of many passers-by. Cyclists dismounted to admire the splendor of colours.
This great diversity of flowers has naturally also attracted the attention of all kinds of bees and other insects. That is why we have asked Douwe Greydanus, nature expert from the regional association for field biology, to regularly make an inventory of the biodiversity in the field.
The results are surprising: in addition to bees, Douwe also observed various species of bumblebees, hoverflies, butterflies and even grasshoppers!
