Description – A blend of nectar and pollen rich flowers, that are proven favourites of honey bees in our gardens and providing forage all season long. Perfect for those gardeners with their own honey hives, or those wishing to encourage bees into their gardens.
Sowing – Sow outdoors where they are to flower once the soil has warmed. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sprinkle the seed thinly over the surface, then rake lightly to ensure seed is just covered. Alternatively, sow 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in drills, 30cm (12in) apart. Germination usually takes 14-21 days.
Growing – As seedlings germinate, carefully thin out any that are too close together with a trowel and replant elsewhere. Regular removal of spent flowers will encourage further blooming.
