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.

Erysimum (wallflower) Bowles Mauve


Tray 6 x8cm plants depending on stock

Simply the best wallflower for bees because it flowers for so long - up to 30 weeks in some years! Wallflowers are really useful plants for the early part of the season providing bright colours to herald the arrival of spring and provide early nectar for bees. This one has the longest flowering season and will provide large pinky purple flowers from March through to Sept. Grows 40cm tall and benefits from being trimmed back lightly after flowering to stop it getting too woody.
