Know your pollinator friendly bulbs

#BulbsForBees is a nationwide pollination project being run by Gaisce – The President’s Award and is approved by the All Ireland Pollinator Plan! The All Ireland Pollinator plan is run through the National Biodiversity Data Centre, and is all about coming together to try to create an island where pollinators can survive and thrive.

The All Ireland Pollinator plan have approved three different pollinator bulbs as appropriate for planting September-October 2021. Bulbs available in local ILDN Centres will be one of the following:

Crocus Tommasinianus Barr’s Purple

Barr’s Purple’ has rich purple-lilac flowers, silvery outside, with orange stigmas and stamens. It has tufted green leaves with a central silvery-white stripe. They grow well in a sunny spot, or under deciduous shrubs. They grow well in most soil types, once they are not too wet for too long. This variety of crocus is a good source of pollen for honeybees early in the season.

Flowers in February – Approx. 10 cm in height

Allium Moly

Otherwise known as “Yellow Garlic”, this is a popular ornamental onion, and certainly one of the easiest to grow. It bears bright yellow, star-shaped flowers which are attractive to bees and other pollinators. Grow Allium moly in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. It’s well suited to growing in a mixed herbaceous border and also beneath trees and shrubs.

Flowers June – July – approx. 25 cm in height

Muscari Armeniacum

Otherwise known as Grape Hyacinth – a good supply of nectar which attracts the butterflies and bees. M. Armeniacum is a strong-growing bulbous perennial, with narrow, arching green leaves and erect stems bearing dense spikes of deep violet-blue, egg-shaped flowers. They grow well in a sun or semi shade area and are a super at naturalising!

Flowers in March/April – approx. 15 cm in height
