From September we will be highlighting a new pollinator friendly plant each month!

If you want to welcome more bees to your outdoor space, Borage is the plant for you, easy to grow, self-seeding and will spread happily in your garden. The pretty blue flowers replenish their nectaries regularly and are a magnet for honeybees all summer. The flowers can be used in drinks and also with the young leaves in salads – although not a native, it’s a win for us and our bees! Find out more about Borage and more plants to welcome our bees and pollinators here.
