What do you get?

A specially selected collection of six plants - six varieties of herbs that the bees visiting your growing space will really enjoy.

 

Bees are incredible, useful and hardworking creatures that do so much to enhance our environment.  Essential to human existence in fact!  Sadly they are increasingly deprived of sources of pollination – especially in urban areas.  There are many varieties of herb that the bees absolutely love, that are excellent sources of pollen.  These herbs are also very tasty and smell amazing too. 

In a day and age in which low maintenance gardening and paved drives are the norm for most of us, planting up a few pots of herbs on our front drive or paved rear garden can do so much to help the plight of the bees.  This collection is for you to enjoy.  But mainly the bees!

The flavours that the bees are going to be enjoying:

Chives- the bees love the Chive flowers that open relatively early in the season.  You will also love the delicious onion flavours that these plants provide.

Lavender Munstead\Hidcote - both fantastic varieties of Lavender that produce masses of scented flowers during mid to late summer.  These flowers will become centres of activity for bees as they appreciate the source of pollen that these flowers produce.

Hyssop  - easy to grow and evergreen.  Flowers early to mid summer and the bees absolutely love these flowers!  You will enjoy putting hyssop into soups and stews too.

Rosemary - easy to grow, reliable and great source of flowering for bees.  They love the pale blue flowers.  And you will love the scent as you brush by this plant.  You will receive an upright Rosemary within the officinalis family (Mrs Jessop, Upright etc).

Bronze/Green Fennel - both of these varieties of Fennel look fantastic throughout the season, architectural and even sound great when the wind blows through the foliage.  But this variety is also very attractive to bees.

Thyme - evergreen and easy to grow.  But the flowers that Thyme produces are an amazing resource to bees. 

 

 

How big are the plants?

All herbs are supplied in 9cm pots. They will be freshly picked for your order. The condition of the plants is our primary concern when fulfilling your order. The foliage will differ in size throughout the season and may be clipped prior to dispatch. The herbs are not soft grown and have spent time in unheated conditions. They are a product designed not just to last a few days but to be grown on by yourselves and supply flavour for months to come.
