Everyone loves a herbal garden! We do, the bees do, the butterflies do… and in this garden there is something for everyone.
Just as some plants are especially good at helping the health of bees by giving more pollen and nectar, so too are some plants good at supporting our health. The Bee Herbal Garden is a selection of herbs that are equally as valuable for the bees as they are for the herbal apothecary.
Grown from seed, these perennial herbs take a little longer to flower in their first year, after which they will bloom continuously for six months every year. Starting with thyme in the Spring, ending with goldenrod in the Autumn, these flowers provide the bees with an abundant supply of food; in return, the bees provide an essential service in pollinating the herbs.
Growing a herbal garden for the bees is a way of creating a truly healing habitat in which all creatures can thrive.
