My best plant for bees so far has been the tall echiums I grew from seeds. They are biennial (although i have had 2 years alreadyfrom them)but i have collected seeds last year, every one germinates, they are so easy,
And i have now planted out about 30. Verbena bon is good, there are 200 around my garden, lupins, foxgloves, alliums, echinops, borage, cerinthe, there are so many, i think i have all Devons bee population.I am harvesting the echium seeds now if anyone wants some, there are thousands. Its the tall bluey looking plants, lots of spikes, that is just one plant so you dont need many.
