Bee & Butterfly Friendly Plants

Posted: 19/06/2016 at 21:29

I was at Dobbies garden centre yesterday and I was amazed at how many bees were on a Budleja Globosa (orange ball tree). Butterflies also love them..

 Agreed, mine is covered with bees. So are my geraniums, foxgloves, aliums and scabious.


In fact I was out this morning taking photos of bees in my garden...

If Talkback has been removed, can Verduns thread be moved to The Potting Shed?

Leadfarmer..........if you don't have nurseries local to you ( or you don't have nurseries you are happy with ) there is a thread started by Verdun last year ( ? ) entitled The Good Guys. Most are on line suppliers but obviously, depending on your location, you may find a Good Guy close to home.


Might be worth while checking out to see what's what


See original post

 Thanks, Id completely missed that thread, just had a look and theres some good recommendations in there. Heres a link to Verduns great thread which can be found in the Talkback section...

Just wondering where folk buy their plants from?


Seeing as I'm planning on turning much of my lawn over to planting areas, I'll be needing to order lots of new plants. Garden centres don't always have the specific plants that I want, and places like B&Q/Homebase have a very limited choice.


So which online suppliers or nurseries do folk recommend for buying plants?
