Description

Bumblebee Margin Mix is a natural aid to pollination, attracting bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects to your plot. Both honey bees and bumblebees gather pollen and nectar from the flowers they visit. Unfortunately, under modern, intensive farming bees have lost both foraging and nesting areas.

Pollen and nectar plant species, once a central part of rotations, are no longer common. Bee populations have been devastated in the past few years, both by cold wet springs and disease.

To substantially improve pollination, Marshalls have created this special mix. Containing Borage, Phacelia and Essex Broad Red Clover, a row of Bumblebee Margin Mix planted in the vegetable garden can significantly improve pollination and crop yields.

Bumblebee Margin Mix can also be sown in late summer for use as a green manure. Dig into the beds as a completely natural way to increase fertility, supress weeds and add valuable humus to your soil. This variety will improve any soil types.

Please note that these great value seeds have a recommended sow/best before date of 2022 making them perfect for sowing this year. We put this date on simply to ensure the freshest seed for the best possible germination results. If you are purchasing now for next year’s sowing we expect the seed to still be viable as they are packed and stored by us in optimum conditions but you may notice slightly lower germination rates depending on how and where you store them
