Monarda’ Fistulosa – Bee Balm – 2 litre pot – £7.50
We love these, but we really struggle to grow them here. We will persevere as we have to stock them.
Its a North American native, thriving in woodland areas. Also known by its botanical name of Monarda, bee balm is very attractive to bees, moths and butterflies. The bee balm flower has layers of tubular petals in shades of red, pink, purple and white. It looks like a punk rocker haircut.
You can grow this with your tomatoes as they improve tomato pollination and boost the flavour and growth.
