The Kew Pollinators range of seeds from Thompson and Morgan has been specially created alongside the experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to attract and support a wide range of pollinators, including bees, butterflies and beetles, as well as a number of other important pollinating insects. Helping these pollinators to thrive is hugely important for our eco-system as a whole and these seeds, in their striking packaging inspired by artwork from the Kew archives, will help to create the environment which they need to thrive, with varieties chosen to help a wide range of pollinating insects, including some night flowering plants to help moths which also play an important part in our gardens.
Best known as Evening Primrose, this biennial wildflower is a magnet for pollinating insects. With an upright, bushy habit, it produces fragrant, bright yellow, cup-shaped blooms from slender pointed buds in summer. Once established it will self-seed to create sprawling colonies of plants, making a fabulous addition to wildlife areas and wildflower planting schemes, where it creates a naturalistic effect. A superb choice for sunny spots on light, sandy soils. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 60cm (24").
