Answer: Bees are forever in search of nectar, which might be why they are so interested in your new heathers. It might be that the plants are the only things in bloom right now. When they stop blooming, the bees will go elsewhere. If the plants are not in bloom at this time, perhaps they are not honeybees but ground nesting bees instead. If this is the case, you have disturbed their underground nest and they are trying to figure out what the plants are doing in their territory. Ground nesting bees are a little more difficult to control but they do like dry ground so you may be able to discourage them by turning on a sprinkler several times a day for several days in a row. The water will effectively repel them. Hope this information helps!
