Bee garden starter kit
I have hundreds of fresh-harvested seeds from my bee gardens this year, and not enough space to use them, so I will try and turn this surplus into a something to help this project grow and flourish.
For a $15 donation to the biodiverseed project, I will send you a bee garden starter kit. With the exception of gladiolus, which should be lifted and stored indoors every year, these plants will all survive or re-seed in zones 5 and higher. The kit will be complete with sowing instructions. Many of these should be sown in Fall.
- Giant Alliums (“Globemaster” and “Millenium”) in purple and white - pictured
- Wild Danish Lupines (purple and pink) - pictured
- Bearded iris (old inherited variety, cultivar unknown) - pictured
- Digitalis (pink and white) - pictured
- Gladiolus (pink) - pictured // if not available, will be swapped with Hollyhock
- Borage (ranges from white to pink to purple to blue) - pictured
- Fritillaria imperialis (orange and yellow) - pictured
- Danish Wild Rose (pink and white) - not pictured
I will also include a selection of annual flowers and herbs, depending on availability: calendula, marigolds, lavatera, sunflowers, nigella and mints are what I have most of right now.
I grow these plants for many purposes: many are edible (alliums, borage, nigella, calendula, mint), or nitrogen fixers (lupines), or pest-repellant (marigolds) in addition to being beneficial to pollinators.
Email me at email@example.com to order. I can combine an order with any of the other offers for free seeds from my garden right now.

*I usually can’t ship to California, Hawai’i, or Australia. Please make sure that these species are not invasive in your area: I will also check before I ship. The seeds are shipped from Denmark. Please note this is not a “sale,” but rather a gift, for a donation.
