Bees absolutely love Heuchara, Heucherella and Tiarella. As bees are struggling a bit at the moment, it’s good to put plants in your garden that they love to help them out a little. In the video above is a bee loving our Tiarella ‘Emerald Ellie’. If every garden contained a range of bee friendly flowers, trees and shrubs we could all help reverse the decline of bees by giving them food and shelter.
It’s important to plant a variety of plants that will flower at different times of the year so the bees can visit your garden all year round. If you do wish to encourage bees in your garden, avoid using insecticides, especially while your plants are flowering. This kills off not only the pesky insects you don’t want, but also the pollinating ones such as bees.
We had a great time at RHS Tatton park, and gorgeous weather for most of it, it got a little sweltering at points! The heat didn’t stop people from stopping by all of the displays though, thank you to anyone who visited us and took home any plants.

We gave planting tips and answered questions at the RHS Potting Bench this year, if you did come to see it, hope you got some useful information!

We were super happy to find a Gold Medal on our stand Wednesday morning, what a great way to start off the show!
We also got some time to have a wander of the grounds and see some of the fantastic show gardens.
Here’s a short video of our display taken on the last day of the show. Even with all the heat our plants were still looking good!
Another big thank you to all of you who support us and stop by our display, it’s always so lovely chatting to you. Hope to see some of you next week at RHS Garden Hyde Hall in Essex August 4th-7th.
