Growing old-style flowers is another tip.  Fancy double blooms may look spectacular but bees can't get their tongues inside, so they are no use for them.

I spent a day at the tail-end of the Chelsea Flower Show last month (as a Groundwork volunteer) and realised afterwards that I had not seen a single bee all day. The emphasis on new varieties, obviously the priority of the plant breeders, means our old-style insects lose out.
