Thanks to all those that have purchased the Bee Friendly Wild Flower seed mix from us. In total Sweetree has raised $2013 from sales of these seeds to help NZ bees. We will continue to sell these so it's not to late to encourage bees to your garden!
Bees are vital for the pollination of many flowers. This mixture has been composed of flowers that are proven bee favourites in our gardens.
Bees will forage on these flowers for nectar and pollen which provide carbohydrates and protein for growth and energy. Well nourished bees are more capable of fending off disease and parasites. Wildflowers are naturally organic—they are not susceptible to bugs or diseases, can help control garden pests and they attract bees and beneficial insects into the garden. The mix contains annuals that will provide food for bees all season long.
