British Woodland Bulbs and Other Bulbs For Bees


The native wildflower bulbs we sell in this section are mostly woodland plants and do best in part shade, so they're useful for difficult spots in the garden. Other spring flowering bulbs, like crocuses, can be an important source of early season pollen and nectar, particularly for honeybees and their new brood. There is little forage about for them before the Blackthorn flowers, and this is a time when many colonies starve. Have a look at our "trees for bees" for some ideas about ornamental trees for your garden too!

Our wildflower bulbs come from a smallholding in deepest Wales, so we're confident we know where they're from and that no chemicals were used in their production.

Lifting bulbs can be fiddly and is very seasonal; please note the despatch times for bulbs and rhizomes, which vary from plant to plant.
