    Thanks for that list - very useful. This RHS page has another useful list, sorted by type of plant rather than flowering time.

    I planted Borage this year and the bees are all over it! Bless them, I have a real soft spot for Bees.

    I get loads of bees and butterflies on my Oregano and it's useful and decorative too

    Umbilifera flowers whilst not the most attractive are well loved by bees and hoverflies -includes Fennel, Dill -- & Lovage!

    Does anyone else think the population of Bumble bees has increased - or does it just seem that way with fewer honey bees??

    The Bees in my Garden currently need waterproofs and stripey scarfs.
