Secondly, celebrate the Elderflower Season with Belvoir and Lisa Faulkner.

From late May, the gentle hum of bees can be heard in the English hedgerows as they burst into flower with the frothy, lace-like blossoms of the elderflower offering a beautifully fragrant, pollen laden sanctuary for the humble bumble!
