Whilst outside in the Garden Centre this week, I found Our Plantsman Phil cheerfully topping up the benches with pots and pots of Lavender . It’s not only Phil I noticed that is attracted to these lovely fragrant plants but swarms of Honey Bees were happily working away at them too. What a simple and attractive way to provide pollen for these little workers ( the Bees that is) in the garden with just the addition of a Lavender plant.
After an inconclusive debate on the best of varieties (Hidcote or Munstead?)
I left Phil (and his Bees) to while away the sunny afternoon…..
