Free bee-friendly flowers will be available to people in Broadland next month as part of a scheme to help the insects.
Broadland District Council is offering residents 20 free crocus bulbs to plant in their gardens over autumn.
John Fisher, Broadland's portfolio holder for environmental excellence, said: 'We hope that by giving away a few bee-friendly bulbs to our residents, we will help the bees to thrive in our area. I hope our residents enjoy seeing the results of their gardening in springtime.'
The council said it was best to plant the bulbs in Autumn for a springtime bloom.
People will need to visit a library in Broadland for a voucher in order to obtain the free bulbs from September 1.
