Autumn nectar sources for bees and etc?

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 19:51

I'm just started to plant my garden and I'm trying to achieve the same thing as you ecokid. I've had long flowering rudebekias and scabious that flowered in October.

I like the look of the asters I've not grown them before. I've got some small seedlings of Bee balm which I think is an aster

Seedaholic stock a nice selection of those mentioned. I got some Fire king? and some purple ones a few weeks ago.

Really like this company, quick, the package is minimal but useful. I've found good germination rates with what ever I bought from them

Next weeks forecast

Not cheating at all, these things you want to get right. A good local landscaper might be worth taking to. Ask around and see if anyone has had a recent work done in their gardens
