Dinner is served! With its long flowering period, the winter heather 1st Dinner provides the bees with vital nutrients as their first food source after winter. With its strong colours, it not only attracts all eyes, but also many early butterflies and bumblebees. With the highest bee nutrition class 4, 1st Dinner makes an important ecological contribution to urban gardening and is ideal for alternating planting in raised beds and balcony boxes.
Characteristics: first high-quality food source for insects after winter, strong colours of buds, large flowers from March to May.
Habitat: sunny to semi-shady
From November to May
Winter heather Erica carnea & darleyensis
1st Dinner is particularly well suited for planting together in raised beds or containers and thus brings out the colour of the flowers especially well. Above all, it offers bees a rich buffet of vital nutrients at the beginning of the year, at a time when nutrient sources are extremely rare.
The new bee-nourishing concept, which includes Erica carnea and Erica darleyensis, was presented for the first time at the Heidelights. The new variety Samantha delights with its strong salmon pink, which is unique for Erica carnea and gives the heath world a new colour glow.
