Thompson & Morgan has this fantastic bee friendly Thrift available.
Flowering Period is May, June – so a good plant to start the summer with. Planting for bees should try to include something in flower every month and sometimes the early part of the year can be vital to their survival.
Other spring plants to consider are bulbs like bluebells and daffodils, as well as ornamental flowering cherrys.
