Bee plants by month
It is commonly believed that you need to ensure there are flowers available in your garden throughout the season. Our observations are that historically bees would have had sufficient stores to make it through the winter and that they start to forage when the trees and hedges flower in March. After that, from May to September they would have relied on meadows and heaths ie. herbaceous perennials and shrubs. Most meadows and heaths have been lost and so garders can provide great value by planting flowers to substitute for these losses.
