Thank you for your advice Lynn.
I didn't know that some plants are pollen free, so I have leant something there.
Although I am growing them for me (as opposed to the bees), given a choice I prefer to see bees on the flowers.
Last summer I was planting lots of Rudbeckia in an area that had not been previously cultivated.
There had been many hot days,and the area was very dry. Before I had completed all the planting, a swarm of ground bees moved in and nested under the soil.
That area had to be left fallow as I didn't want to disturb them.
