Plants for bees

We are on holiday for a week so any orders place now will be delivered Thursday 17th or Friday 18th August.

Items on sale are all fine but getting too big for our boxes and need a new home now.

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.

Echium Vulgare (vipers bugloss)

11.00

Tray of 6 plants; - 2nd best in our research

Biennial. One of our best bee-plants because it provides nectar for the bees all day long and is a real stunner! This biennial loves dry conditions and poor soil. From its rough grey uninspiring leaves it sends up 100cm spires of deep blue flowers with pink highlights. If flowers from July to September but the amazing thing about this plant is that it produced nectar all day - unlike most plants that dry up by about lunchtime - and so provides and all-day bee buffet.
