Buy plants that attract the most bees

We are now taking orders for spring-time deliveries:

·      Allium deliveries from February

·      Main stock from end March

·      Pots collection/annuals when frosts stop

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 6, or sometimes 10, small plants and each tray is enough to fill 1+ 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.

Collection: smaller alliums for bees


Collection: smaller alliums for bees

19.00 22.00

Available for immediate delivery. Reduced as some are starting flower already!

3 trays (30-40 bulbs) of smaller dainty alliums, ready to flower and providing a succession of flower from mid-May to end of June attracting a wide range of bee species. These bulbs tend to multiply more quickly than the big purple 'pompom' type alliums, providing many more flowers for bees in future years.

1x tray of allium cowanii - white, 12-15 bulbs per tray

1x tray of mixed allium roseum and unifolium- pink, 12-14 bulbs per tray (very similar in appearance but roseum flowers first)

1x tray of sphaerocephalon (drumstick allium) - dark pink/green, 10-12 bulbs per tray

All best in full sun but will be happy tucked between other later-flowering plants.

Pesticide note: it is not currenly possible to get a good range of organic 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 completely safe for the bees next year.
