Wildflower bees and butterflies collection
£44.00 – £85.00
- The Bees and butterflies plug plant collection will contain a selection of at least 9 species chosen by us from the following list:
- Common Knapweed, Greater knapweed, Birdsfoot trefoil, Red clover, Self heal, Cowslip, Wild marjoram, Field scabious, Meadow vetchling, Cuckoo flower, Agrimony, Viper’s bugloss, Greater stitchwort, Teasel, Rock rose, Primrose, Wild wallflower, Toadflax, Spiked speedwell
Our collections are trays of 54 or 108 plants including at least 9 species from the list given, selected in multiples of 6. However if you prefer to choose your own species and numbers of plugs, you can of course order from the plant sections of this website.
We recommend planting 6 plugs / sqm depending on the species and the site. Our 59ml square plug plants grown in peat free compost are a good size for water retention which will help their survival rates after planting. Regular watering is advised if possible until they are established, but is not essential depending on the weather and location.
These plug plants are ideal to attract a range of bees, butterflies and other insect pollinators to the garden.
For more help see our article How to Choose and Use Plug Plants or contact us with your enquiry and we are always happy to help and advise.
Plugs are available for much of the year, although the recommended time to plant is March – October depending on the weather conditions and location.
