My sister has just got a bee hive. The bees are coming in May/June I would like to plant a “bee bar”! ie flowers and other plants which entice bees in the garden. Appreciate if you could provide a list of suitable flowers/plants.
To collect nectar, bees need large areas of clover or bramble, or ivy later in the year.
Bees will work whatever sources are most productive to them. But if you want a plant to see them working on something, sow some limnanthes seeds.
