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.

Verbena Bonariensis


Tray of6 x 8cm plants

Best within our range forfor butterflies

A classic plant for many pollinating insects and a real stunner for late season colour in the garden. Purple flowers grow to 80cm high on delicate stems held well above the foliage to give the impression they are floating. We recommend you plant between other plants. This one will produce lots of seedlings but as the original plants tend to only last a few years that is usually a good thing; put it somewhere where weeding is possilbe so you can control.
