Bee Friendly Plants Part III

Over my past couple of blogs I have listed some of Gardening Direct’s garden plants that will encourage bees to enter your garden. Working with Gardening Direct, bee-craft.com has listed those plants from Gardening Direct’s extensive range of bedding plants that the Honey Bees simply can’t resist.

 

The final additions to the list are:

 

Japanese Anemone Collection – easy to grow, fully hardy and reliable flowers

Delphinium Mix – tall flower spikes in shades of blue and mauvedelphinium-mix

 

Snowdrops (not doubles) – bulbs that can flower from as early as mid January onwards

Spring Flowering Crocus Mix – produces spectacular early spring displays

Allium Aflatunense Purple Sensation – looks good alongside lavender plants

Allium Fireworks Mix – unusual collection of coloured blooms resembling fireworks

Pink and White Allium Collection – lilac pink and white fluffy pom pom flowers

Anemone Blanda Mix – beautiful large daisy type flowers
