Bee Happy Plants & Seeds is a Not-For-Profit UK company (number 8899290) Organic Grower of plants to encourage conservation and proliferation of these plants beneficial to ALL bees and other pollinators. Certified for plant passports by DEFRA number 109891 and organic certification by Soil Association Grower number G8492 and seed merchant number DMO8492 (Trading schedule and certificate available on request)
We grow wild-species plants: herbs, perennials, shrubs, and trees as evolved with pollinators over millions of years, and raised from seed, as nature intended.
Now growing in 100% COMPOSTABLE, 100% BIODEGRADABLE plug-pots, we are switching all production methods to be plastic-free, and replacing worn out plastic equipment after having been used and re-used for many years, with compostable or sustainable, natural materials, throughout our whole growing process. Our customers (only, we regret!) are invited to return any of our re-usable plastic pots – and we will refund their shipping cost from your next order – return and email us!
We ship plants and seeds throughout the British Isles, and Europe (to order plants for shipping to Europe please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide an exact quote for the shipping cost). We use organic growing methods to produce the healthiest plants free from toxic residues, offering the purest pollen and nectar for bees and other pollinators. Wild-species plants have the chance to evolve and survive climate change. All our wild plants and seed are produced on certified organic land.
‘An estimated 20,000 flowering plant species, upon which many bee species depend for food, could be lost over the coming decades unless conservation efforts are stepped up'(1). All flowering plants have evolved over millions of years with their pollinators in mutual-dependency. The plants produce pollen and nectar in return for pollination, which produces fruit and seed. Bees are the primary pollinators, but other pollinators include butterflies, moths, midges, dragonflies and some wasps.
Wild unaltered plants (or ‘species’ plants), have evolved to support their pollinators with perfect forage rewards in return for pollination, and have the ability, through diverse gene-pools, to evolve to suit changing environmental conditions.
