Supporting Bees, Butterflies and Wildflowers
Help our native pollinators and take a plant home for free.
This year at Ballymacrown Homestead we are offering our guests a free plant to take home that will attract pollinators.
If you are unable to take a plant because you are flying there is a free packet of wildflower seeds instead.
The choice of plants for 2015 includes: Rosa rugosa (wild rose), the herb fennel and Verbenna bonariensis.
The plants were chosen for the variety of bees and butterflies they support. The wild rose has a beautiful scent and the fennel can be used in cooking. The Verbenna bonariensis will fill your garden with butterflies all summer.
