For financial members each Spring we have cuttings available of the following plants, all excellent for providing off-season nectar. Before ordering, please read the following carefully and see what is available NOW. If it’s not shown as available you can pre-order for the following year but this will need to be a separate order (i.e. separate P&P). And also please note these are cut fresh at the time, they are NOT rooted cuttings.

Butterflies enjoying the white Mexican tree daisy (Montanoa grandiflora) and yellow Mexican tree daisy or sunflower (Tithonia diversifolia) both of which flower early in winter, a time of year when there’s not much else flowering in the garden, attracting butterflies, bees and bumble bees.

Yellow Mexican marigold bush – Tagetes lemmonii (see below) with its aromatic foliage and brightly coloured flowers. Can flower all year round in the right location!

Buddleja salviifolia, the spring-flowering Buddleia (NOT a pest plant). Masses of small, lilac blooms are borne in large panicles. The flowers are sweetly scented – some say the colour is pink while others describe the colour as mauve. Flowering in spring.
