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.

Digitalis - Foxglove

from 7.00

Native biennial much loved by bumblebees. Grows 90cm high flowers deep pink in June/ July time. Classic cottage garden plant and will self seed to keep coming. Mostly the deep pink flowers but can occasionally have white or cream in the mix as we use our own seed. 

Its fantastic fun to watch the larger bumblebees disappear up inside the flowers. Be patient on a sunny day and you will see.
