At Beekind Plants we want to see all our gardens a-buzz with bees and pollinating insects. The future of the planet depends on them after all! We also want to be 100% plastic free. Tackling single use plastic is vital to a sustainable future on earth. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to grow the best quality, pollinator friendly plants, packaged in 100% biodegradable plant pots!
In Spring 2021 our popular Beekind Plant Stall will be back, bringing you the best in bee and wildlife friendly plants to create a haven for all pollinating insects in your own back garden!
The decline in numbers of pollinating insects will continue to have serious ramifications for biodiversity, the production of food and the environment in general. The balance needs to be redressed back towards re-wilding our gardens and green spaces, reducing pesticide use, providing ample opportunities for foraging pollen and nectar and for building suitable nesting and breeding sites.
That's where we can help you do your bit! If we all 'think globally, act locally' we can make a big difference. All the plants we grow are found on the RHS 'Plants for Pollinators' list, to ensure we are providing our pollinators with the sustenance they need to help to sustain us, and the planet!
Every plant we sell comes in a 100% biodegradable pot. We grow our plants in plastic pots onsite, then transfer to the POSIpot at Point of Sale. The customer plants the whole pot straight in the ground where it will biodegrade within six weeks, minimizing root damage and maintaining a healthy plant. We take the plastic pots back to site, clean and reuse them, reducing the amount of plastic going into landfill.
We also use 100% Peat and Pesticide free compost. As our business grows, we aim to keep our ethos central to everything we do, valuing ethical, sustainable and eco friendly business practices over profit!
