Bee Friendly Plants

Encouraging the selection of native plants, shrubs and trees for our gardens, is another way to help the bees survive in urban locations. Bee friendly plantings enable the bees to forage for pollen and collect nectar from our gardens, parks and public spaces.

Now is the time to plant out your garden with nectar rich Australian natives.

We have a limited number of Grevillea available in store.
