Bee collection (Marginal)

A collection of 10 native marginal plants suitable for attracting bees to eventually cover 2-3m of marginal shelves.

Bees are constantly in the news as some of the many species are now endangered, many of us are interested in gardening especially with wildlife in mind.  To help the bees we have compiled a collection of plants to assist them with their pollinating. Many of the old fashioned plant varieties are the best choices for inviting bees into our gardens to pollinate plants.  As they collect nectar the wild bees and honeybees also collect pollen.  Bees are important pollinators and without them many of our plants could become extinct. 

The plants will be selected from our range of native marginal plants to give as long a flowering period as possible, and will include plants from the following list:

Marsh marigold, Purple loosestrife, Yellow Loosestrife, Yellow flag, Water mint, Forget-me-not, Bog bean, Water figwort, Lesser spearwort, Greater spearwort, Marsh cinquefoil and Pennyroyal 

We will endeavour to supply as much variety as possible with a minimum of five different types of plant in each pack

Plants will be supplied in 9cm pots and bare root.

This collection is available without planting baskets, with baskets only, or as a complete package including soil and aquatic gravel -please select  from "Collection options" box below.

Planting in baskets you would need to purchase approx 15 litres of soil and 1.75 litres of gravel.  If the baskets option is selected we will supply a mixture of 50/50 1 and 2 litre baskets with the 2 litre baskets for the taller/larger growing plants.
