Bee's Universe - a 1 kg selection of the melliferous plants is a unique composition of nectariferous flowers and herbal plants that are undemanding and bloom abundantly and long. It consists of seeds of over 20 annual, biennial and perennial plants that are undemanding and do not need any special care measures. The Bee's Universe selection contains herbs and flowering plants that are useful for bees, as all the plants supply the insects with large amounts of pollen and nectar. The plants bloom in different colours and differ in height (they grow from 30 to 100 cm tall) and habit, so you may create a breathtaking, semi-wild meadow. The selection offered in our store combines beauty and usefulness. It is perfectly suited for growing on wastelands, roadsides and empty spaces under trees in the orchard. Blooming melliferous plants attract bees and other pollinating insects, what translates to higher yield of vegetables and fruit.
Seeds of the Bee's Universe selection should be mixed with sand in 1:3 proportion and sown in spring or summer. We recommend a hand sown onto previously cultivated soil and raking the ground. In order for the plants to bloom abundantly, you should provide them with a sunny site.
