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.

Collection: smaller alliums


Collection: smaller alliums


Available for delivery from January.

3 trays of alliums, all 30-40 cm in height providing a succession of flower from mid-May to end of June attracting a wide range of bee species.

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 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 completely safe for the bees next year.
