Need Bees This Year!

Posted: 25/03/2013 at 00:32

I've failed to attract bees to my garden for as long as I can remember, but this year I haven't given myself a budget, so am looking for any perennials that attract wildlife, preferably clump forming or ones that seed themself, so I'm able to make even more for free in the long run (like Monty does)...

Anyone got any suggestions?

Just a few suggestions...

You could always try something like a box, which can be easily topiaried into practically any shape. There's also Camelia's, Corydylines (put on anexcellent display) and ten you could always buy a obelisk and grow a climber.

Thanks for that Although, my Verbena dont have any sowing instructions (spose thats what you get when you buy them cheap) and all the websites state different things. Some say its tricky to grow, others say its easy?

Hi Marie, firstly, it depends whether you want to grow, fruit, veg, herbs, flowers or shrubs?

One cornus or three?

I agree with Mummy Muddy Paws, plant all three, because they'll look beautiful when everything else has died back in Autumn and Winter. However, in my dads garden, they got too overgrown (due to him not taking much care) and then they got this white fungus, which I later found out was due to lack of air circulation, so make sure they're not touching eachother and keep them pruned

Hiya, really need some advice, I've just dug out some seed trays and pots, various shapes and sizes and am wanting to sow Sweet Pea's, Aquilegia and Verbena Bonariensis. Now what do I do?!
