Prix régulier SFr. 12.95

A carefully selected mix of 5 native wildflowers that bees will just love! Our mix uses species only recommended by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust - see below for details of each plant, how to use and flowering periods.

Species name: Red Clover (Trifolium pretense).
Description: Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
Height: 10 - 45cm.
Flowers: May to September.
GeekletThe Trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds
nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!

Species name: Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus).
Description: A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.
Height: 15-25cm.
Flowers: May to October.
Geeklet: Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into
your summer baskets and patio pots??

Species name: Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea).
Description: A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with pink and purple flowers on spikes.
Height: 60 - 150cm.
Flowers: June to September.
Geeklet: Foxgloves are a really good ‘bridging plant’, as they bloom late May-June, a period when the bulbs have finished and the summer perennials are yet to be at their best!

Species name: Viper's Bigloss (Echium vulgare).
Description: A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with
incredibly blue flowers emerging from pink buds.
Height: 30 - 90cm.
Flowers: June to September.
Geeklet: If you’re looking to do something a little different with your echium,
why not try growing a low blue hedge with it, or scatter it amongst paving slabs to soften the landscape and add a punch of colour.

Species name: Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare). 
Description: Aromatic perennial with dark purple buds and pinkish purple flowers.
Height: 30 - 60cm.
Flowers: April to November.
GeekletThe Wild Marjoram is not only a wildflower, but can also double up as a pretty damn tasty pizza topping, along with your very best sweet tomatoes!
