Another good one for early in the year is the ornamental current (Ribes sanguineum). I planted one for the bees a few years ago and they absolutely love it. I wasn't all that keen on Ribes before, if I'm honest, but I'm now a definite convert and think they're lovely. The one I have is 'Pulborough Scarlet'.
