An all-round one stop shop for everything honey bee, Johnny's Garden runs programmes to encourage urban beekeeping, making it as simple as possible for everyone from city flat dwellers to big businesses to support bee populations. If you have space, they'll install and maintain apiaries for you, or supply the kit and teach you how to look after it yourself. If you don't, you can sponsor a hive for £45 a year, for which you'll get summer and winter jars of honey, honeycomb and a book on beekeeping – plus the knowledge that you're helping our beleaguered bees. They're based in a suburban back garden in Ayrshire, with their main apiary in Fintry and urban hives in Glasgow.
