Bees Will Love These Collection

  • We are very much aware of the plight of our bees and we are proud to have a wide range of plants bees will love. We have created a collection of our favourites.

  • The Bees Will Love These Collection contains one of each plant in either a 7cm or 8cm pot.

  • Japanese Quince – Chaenomeles japonica (10-15cm): A very ornamental, red flowered, small shrub. Its shiny, bright red flowers open before the leaves appear, giving a fantastic sight. The Chaenomeles japonica is suitable for pot growing (as a patio plant) and to be trained to a wall. It looks great when arched over pathways or steps in the garden. Its apple sized fruits are edible, yellow when ripe. The fruit is best when cooked as it makes a perfect addition to any jams and the squeezed juice is rich in aroma. Fast growing and hardy to -20C.
  • Chinese Wisteria – Wisteria sinensis (10-15cm): A lovely climber from the Far East with spectacular lavender coloured, hanging racemes which open before the leaves appear. It can be trained to a wall but will look best when it grows freely on fences, walls or old tree trunks. It does not like to dry out completely but not too fussy to soil conditions. It takes several years to get established, but it is worth the wait.
  • Tea Crab Apple – Malus hupehensis (15-20cm): A wild fruit from the Hupeh province of China, the Malus hupehensis can make a good display in your garden due to a number of factors. It is versatile, drought tolerant and produces attractive, fragranced flowers from pinkish coloured buds in the Spring. In the late Autumn the tree has edible cherry sized, light brown apples, soft when ripe which provide food for the birds as well as you. The fruit can be used in conserves or eaten raw. During November, the trees fall colour is in spectacular shades of orange. It is well suitable for bonsai or even for the patio if keeping it in a large pot.
