the PLANTS

Bees and all our wild pollinators need a plentiful supply of flowers throughout the whole season.

In the countryside there is a range of wildflowers available throughout the seasons but we have lost many of our wildflower meadows.

By planting our gardens with flowers we can help replace some of these lost meadows. We can provide flowers in our flower gardens, our herb gardens and our fruit and vegetable garden.
