Twerton, Bath. The verge on the corner has had a good colony of Bee orchids for the last two years, but last year they were strimmed before they set seed and there is only one plant this year.

Bee orchids, (Ophrys apifera) are locally scarce and there have been a healthy colony of them on the verge of Long Valley Road for the past two years. Last year they were stimmed before they had a chance to set seed and as a consequence there is only one plant there this year. Could you please direct me to someone who can help protect this habitat? I believe if it's strimmed to soon again the colony will be destroyed and that would be a real shame for the residents of Twerton.
