Finding the best plants to grow for Bees

Flowers that help bees thrive

Help Bees thrive and encourage them into your garden.

It's easier than you think. Bees love nectar, and a large proportion of plants produce nectar. Planting nectar producing plants will encourage Bees in to your garden, as will water sources such as bird baths, ponds and natural water pools.

Don't be fooled though, not all plants are equal. Over hundreds of years humans have been medalling with plant breeds, creating ever more wonderful and exotic hybrids and varieties that, to us humans look fantastic. However, for the humble bumble bee these new varities can often cause trouble for them. Ruffled petals can often hide and cover the plants nectar rich center, some plants are completely sterile and dont produce much or any nectar at all.

Luckily, we're here to help. We specifically select plants that are great for nature and we've made our website super easy for you to use. Look out for the 'Good for bees' tag on products. These highlight flower varieties that are great for nectar loving pollinators.
