READY FOR THE SPRING
Beekeepers know how important the very first pollen is to honeybees and their health. By generously planting flower bulbs you lay the best foundation for a good development of the colonies. For example, they reach maturity early and are at strength to pollinate the fruit and other crops when these come into bloom.
PLANT THEM FOR THE BEEHOUSE, HARF or ON THE VEGETABLE GARDEN
Great package for a beekeeper with a single cupboard, for the neighbors or in the vegetable garden. In this way you contribute to early food for and the survival of honey bees. A beekeeper cannot do it alone, and pollination by bees is very important to all of us. Without the pollination of bees, no apples, pears, berries, nuts and many other tasty things. And what's so nice, these flower bulbs also attract the happily buzzing bumblebee queens and the first butterflies.
Flower bulbs are a huge boost in the spring, honey bees and bumblebees can quickly build their nests and you will see many workers populating your garden.
NECTAR AND POLLEN
Crocuses have the highest nectar and pollen value (5) and also the other mentioned flowerbulbs are selected for their contribution to the lifehood of bees.
PRINCIPIALLY GROWN CHEMICALFREE
Crop pesticides (poisons) can be absorbed by nectar and pollen from plants. That is the reason that we choose exclusively chemical-free grown flower bulbs and also test them ourselves. All growers are already EKO certified and we look very specifically at the effects on the useful pollinators. They are sensitive to the smallest amounts. Want to read more about that? Look at Our quality, or Home.
100% Chemicalfree grown flower bulbs, tested by beekeepers, are safe for bees and other pollinators.
** This package is available for all english speaking beekeepers and gardeners. However, we have a request to inhabitants of the British continent: though it is the smallflowered wild type, and not the large flower higher stem spanisch type, this hyacinthoides non-scripta blue is not the same as your unique woodflower Bluebell. We feel a responsabitity and prefer to keep your plantlife pure and avoid mixing up the marvellous Bluebells by cross pollination with any other type than the original Bluebell. Though the non-scripta very much looks like it, we advise not to plant this flowerbulb variety on the British continent and/ or specifically not in the neighbourhood of nature reserves.
