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.
Whether you are creating a herb garden, planting a wildlife area or bulking up herbaceous borders – there should always be space for some Hyssop! This aromatic shrubby herb has a multitude of culinary and medicinal uses, adding a tang to meat dishes or salads, and flavouring teas. It is loved by pollinating insects too, and also makes an attractive low hedge, with foliage that remains semi-evergreen in mild areas.
Hyssopus officinalis 'Tricolour Mixed' is a pretty blend producing purple, pink and white flowers from midsummer to autumn, which rise upwards upon short flower spikes. With so much to offer, this versatile herb is well worth finding a sunny spot for. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 100cm (39").
