Nutrient plants for Bees
Worldwide the number of existing insect species is in decline. The reason for this regrettable trend and its origin is being caused for various reasons, no matter which factors cause the insect killing in detail, it is essential for survival to stop this ongoing development.
Pollen and nectar are the livelihoods of insects and other pollinators but not all plants are of equal value as food sources, it would therefore be desirable to increase planting of the so-called “Nutrient plants for Bees” where possible as they are the most beneficial for the insect population due to their high pollen and nectar content.
In our extensive assortment we have many such plants available. In particular the popular examples such as Castanea sativa (Sweet Chestnut), Prunus avium (Bird Cherry), Robinia pseudoacacia (Locust) and Sophora japonica (Japanese Pagoda Tree).
Among the avenue trees, especially our “classic” Tilia europaea ‘Pallida’ Typ Lappen also known as a bee food tree, as a late bloomer, it provides for a comprehensive food supply for insects from June to August.
Certainly this list can only serve as an example. With us you will find many other trees that meet both your project planning needs while also serving the ecological aspect.
