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, 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



Snowdrops and Winter Aconites Mix – will carpet bare soil with golden flowers

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
