Solitary bees are often overlooked. There are about 250 species in the UK and they vary in size from the size of a grain of rice to as big as the top of my thumb. Dandelions offer solitary bees a vital food source and leaving them to flourish rather than cutting them back or killing them is an excellent way to support our wild bees. The flowers are also very beautiful if you look closely
