afternoon bee tea

There's only a few more weeks left to enjoy our special guest lemon, honey and ginger recipe.

So to celebrate all your thirsty work in helping set up 40 hives across the UK and reintroducing countless bees, we've come up with a special competition with our friends at the National Trust.


One lucky winner and their friend will win a trip to visit Hanbury Hall in Worcestershire to meet Tim the beekeeper, see the hives, take a tour of the beautiful gardens and after asking all your bee related questions, enjoy a spot of afternoon tea.


Here's Tim telling people about bees


And here's a nice cream tea (NB: scones may differ to picture shown)

All you need to do to enter is answer the following questions from Neil, the head gardener at Hanbury Hall:

1. Which capital fellow designed the spectacular gardens at Hanbury Hall?

2. What is the one thing you'd like to ask Tim the beekeeper?

3. How many scones can you eat in one sitting?

Just post your answers, age and whereabouts you live as a comment below and we'll choose a winner on Friday 30th July.

Meantime, if you've not posted your bee flower picture yet, you can do so right here.

This competition is now closed. We'll get Tim and Neil to pick a lucky winner this week. Meantime, thanks to everyone who entered.
