Bees, flowers

Bees and more bees.

Here in Australia we are quite lucky in that we aren’t suffering from the significant drop off in the bee population experienced in other countries – and we don’t want to!

Bees are an essential element in your garden. Without bees, there is no pollination. Without pollination, there’s no fruit. Even if you aren’t a huge flower fan, it’s important to have some flowering plants in you garden, to support the ecosystem. Try adding at least some of the following to your garden:


  • Borage
  • Catmint
  • Coriander
  • Lavender
  • Sage
  • Thyme


  • Anemone
  • Aster
  • Bottle Brush
  • Buttercup
  • Crocus
  • Geranium
  • Grevillia
  • Hollyhocks
  • Sun drops


  • Calendula
  • Cleome
  • Heliotrope
  • Poppy
  • Sunflower
  • Zinnia
