G Plants pushes Dutch expertise

Seed, bulb and growing gifts supplier G Plants has launched a number of new spring flowering bulbs to add to its Bee Friends range, with help from its dedicated Dutch supply team and research and development into pollinating varieties.

G Plants director Alex Reihl said: "Autumn 2016 will see the introduction of great retail ranges, with new bulb collections and growing gifts. In Holland we have continued to grow and improve our bespoke varieties of bulbs and we are proud to be supporting gardening for pollinators, originally started by RHS and RSPB. We have a great range of bulbs specially selected for their ability to attract early pollinators into the garden and complete planting concepts for even the most novice of gardeners."

There are 20 new bulb cappers (RRP £3.99 each) and four new Shake n Rake mixed bulb collections (RRP £5.99 each).

The new Bee Friends Milk Churns (RRP £9.99 each) and Buckets (RRP £7.99 each), can be reused for year round flowering.  Both gift sets come with bestselling varieties such as narcissus and crocus - supplied with compost to make enjoying the product even easier.

Riehl added: "A great deal of research has gone into picking the best varieties to help provide early nectar and pollen source for bees. Our bulb collection has been designed to provide flowering varieties from January through to June, so it’s even easier for consumers to create a wildlife friendly garden throughout the whole year."
