Plants for bees

We are now closed for 2017 but will open again in December for advance orders for 2018. In the meantime you might like to subscribe to our newsletter or use our research to plan for next year.

All our plants have been carefully selected to ensure that they are amongst the most attractive to bees; we grow and observe each variety before we offer them for sale. And of course they are all grown organically and are peat and pesticide free!

We sell our plants in trays of 10 large plugs or 6 small plants and each tray is enough to fill 1-2 square meters of flowering area. All plugs and plants are ready to go straight into the ground and we recommend planting in blocks of 3s or 5s as a big block is more efficient for the bees.

Sorry we only ship to mainland UK and Northern Ireland excluding islands.

Allium nectaroscordum

sold out

Allium nectaroscordum


Tray of 6 cells containing typically 8-10 bulbs

One of the best alliums for bees. Beautiful large drooping umbels of pink/green flowers, on tall stems up to 1m high in June.

Pesticide note: it is not currenly possible to get a good range of organic of allium bulbs and although these bulbs have not been pesticide dipped, the prevoius years leaves will have been lightly sprayed with a non-systemic pesticide (ie not neonicontinoid). Any pesticide traces should be removed by spending the winter in clean compost at rosybee and be clean for the bees next year.
