I started going tropicalbut noticed a lack of bees in the garden,but the wasps were on the up.So this year i have been busy planting old faithfull varieties and this year the bees are as strong as ever.Can you harvest bumble bee honey?

I am looking for things of intrest and good for nature nut.

I have grown this year some giant hysop.i got them from china,and they say that it is in the top ten in chinese medicine.It tastes like aniseed and is nice done like mint tea.

I hope to take some seed this year,they are still in full flower yet and the bees love them.They are like salvia only they grow 3-4 feet in height.

They won't be ready yet but Eryngium giganteum is one of my stars for bees


Also Viper's Bugloss as mentioned earlier but may have been on another thread. 

I can send you seed of either of those.

I will have some Eucomis (pineapple lily) later in the year, they take quite well from seed


   Hey addict, thats my trick!!! (only trouble is I can never remember what I've got!)

I would love some giant hyssop if possible please? Is that possible? I am really keen to make my garden as wildlife friendly as possible. I can offer some Shoefly seeds as soon as they become available. They are in flower at the moment.

quiet lady, just gather what you have at the end of the year and maybe we can all have a mass swap with everyone.
