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.

Lavender 'grosso'

12.00

Tray of 6 plants

Big fat purple lavender flowers. This is a one of the 'intermedia' hybrids that we have selected because of its very long flowering season; great for bees and gardeners. It should flower from July to Sept and if cut back after the initial flowers will often flower again.

The leaf ball grows to 50cm across but the tall flower stems extend this to up to 90cm when in flower; the flowers tend to flop sideways which means it is not as tall is the 90cm implies and is really nice at the edge of a path.
