Best bee plants today

Posted: 25/03/2015 at 09:21

I've always gone for 'interesting' plants Vic. 

Anything in a seed catalogue I've never heard of, if it's hardy and not a lime hater, I'll have a go.

Fishy, except for the Ribes, all those plants are Boraginaceae, a good bee family.

Trachystemon is great ground cover in deciduous shade.

Forsythia suspensa

Dunno Dave, a lot of the sticks you see in the pic aren't part of the forsythia. There's no room for it where it is, I took some cuttings in autumn and I think they're OK so I'll start another one and take this one out.

I bought it from a roadside stall and have never known which one it is.

That's great steephill

Forsythia suspensa

Do you think this is Forsythia suspensa?

It's quite pale, flowers much less close together than the usual bright yellow ones and long arching branches

I think it's too tall for ground elder. But this was posted months ago and KF never came back again I doubt if we''ll get any spring  photos.

I might wait a bit and see where the new growth comes then cut it back to some good shoots.

Take care where you put the mouse traps

They like to access the roof space of our wood framed house and garage/shed, you can hear them at night, especially in autumn.  The chew things and make nests out of our stuff

They get zapped. The garden they're welcome to.
