Bee-friendly shrubs

Bienenfreundliche Sträucher kaufen

When you buy bee-friendly shrubs, you will create a little paradise in your garden. The abundant pollen and nectar offered by these flowers will fill the air with busy insects! The opulent blossoms of many bee-friendly shrubs are also a feast for the human’s eyes and noses – they provide aromatherapy for free. So bring nature to your garden and see what design options are possible with bee-friendly shrubs!

The main feature of all bee-friendly shrubs is that they offer valuable nectar and protein-rich pollen. Their flowers are easily accessible to insects, as they are usually single blooms. The nectar formed in the honey glands serves as a lure for the winged flower visitors, who in return offer an excellent pollination service through the distribution of pollen. From this, a large food supply in the garden also benefits apples, pears and other fruits because many guests are guaranteed to visit their flowers.

If you have plenty of space in your garden, we recommend that you choose shrubs with different flowering times – this will ensure the supply of diligent collectors. Incidentally, planting a berry bush (blackberries and raspberries) automatically gives you a wonderful source of food for bees. Although the flowers are rather unimpressive, the gardener will be rewarded with delicious fruits later on.

Bee-Friendly Woody Plants From The Lubera Garden Shop

At Lubera you will find a huge assortment of flowering beauties that are suitable for a hedge as well as for individual positions. Here are just a few examples: even in the cold season, the fragrant winter snowball Charles Lamont offers pure pleasure for hungry bees; in the spring, when the food sources are still scarce, the Fourberry ‘Black Pearl’ attracts with its bright yellow flowers, which later mature to delicious fruits. It is an absolute highlight for all nectar and pollen collectors.

Traditional Plants For Bees

As you get more involved in the subject, you learn that not all the flowers of the different shrubs provide nectar and pollen in the same amount. The bluebeard is, for example, a good pollen donor, the alder buckthorn, however, offers luscious nectar. Also for this reason it makes sense to create a change in the bees’ diet. In principle, however, all plants/trees that are flown to by bees can be classified as valuable.

Wild, Honey Bees & Other Pollinators In The Garden

In the home garden, you can create a safe haven for wild and honey bees. Honeybees provide excellent pollinator performance and are particularly efficient in pollinating fruits, vegetables and nuts. But don’t forget wild bees – including the peaceful bumblebees – which also provide an important pollination service. They usually work longer than honey bees, tolerate adverse weather conditions and pollinate a wider range of plants. Many live solitarily and lay their eggs in the ground or tubes. The local pollinators include butterflies, moths, beetles and flies. If you want to buy bee-friendly shrubs, you may also want to think about suitable nesting aids for wild bees – they will thank you. (Pay attention to the recommendations of a nature conservation association, as not all commercially available nesting aids are equally well suited.)

Buy Matching Bee-Friendly Shrubs

If you want to buy bee-friendly shrubs, the selection will depend on the existing space in your garden, the site conditions, and of course your preference for plant height, flower colour, etc. Here is a list of bee-friendly wild shrubs that provides a good overview. Furthermore, our Lubera team will gladly advise you on the planned planting of a grove or flowering hedge, which on the one hand is beautiful to look at and on the other hand also optimises the food supply for insects throughout the year.

Native Shrubs Are Bee-Friendly

Native, non-grafted woody plants are bee-friendly; another advantage is that they also provide a set table for many other animals. They provide an immense food supply for birds and insects in all stages of development.

Domestic wild shrubs are also good, for example the Cornelian cherry and the spindle. Dog rose and honeysuckle are also suitable for the garden and attract these industrious workers magically. The location requirements for these plants vary: dog roses thrive best in the sun, Cornelian cherries and spindles like partial shade and honeysuckles prefer the shade.
