Lubbe & Sons are looking at the different ways that bulbs and wildflower combinations are important to the environment and how you can incorporate them into your urban space.
Wildflowers, apart from their natural beauty, offer much to the modern landscape. Well-managed with the right tools, they save time and money while fostering a natural ecosystem where various species collaborate to control pests and diseases.
Pollination, a fortunate side effect of bees gathering food, ensures a year-round food source for them. This sustains them during lean times and aids in pollinating our crops. Without bees, even common crops like tomatoes would require manual pollination, impacting the economy and the environment.
To bridge the gaps in bee foraging, we can help by choosing appropriate plants, favouring bulbs and wildflower combos. Lubbe offers three fantastic mixes - "Nectar Explosion", "Happy Bee", and "Summer Sensation" with varying densities to suit your needs.
But, before selecting a mix, consider these guidelines:
Regardless of your stance on replacing manicured grass with bulbs and wildflowers, these plants support insect populations and visitor well-being, and we should appreciate their diversity and historical role in our food supply.
