Our Bee Seeds Mix (shortlisted for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Garden Product Of The Year) will create a stunning, ever changing display of flowers from late spring through to mid-autumn, all carefully selected to provide a rich and diverse food source for solitary bees, bumble bees, honey bees and other pollinating insects.
A colourful collection of cottage garden favourites, chosen for their value to wildlife and combined to create drifts of meadowy blooms.
