You might have heard on BBC Radio Shropshire from time to time or seen on Countryfile about the charity. We have been breeding osmia solitary bees in the wild for over ten years.

My remit is to initiate the concept of breeding these bees back in the hands of the general public. As a qualified farmer as well as horticulturalist, I feel well placed to carry out this task.

Please log onto the charity’s website for further details PraiseBee.org.uk

Semi-retirement will allow me more time to devote into the production of Alstroemeria for the trade, along with the introduction of many new varieties that I have been selecting over the last 35 years.

Step One sourcing of buds from the mother plants

Step Two Meristem production

Step Three Alstroemeria budding up on agar gel ‘in vitro’

The laboratory growing room


The National Collection tunnel

On 14th February, 2011 we were granted the National Collection status of garden hardy Alstroemeria by Plant Heritage NCCPG National Collections In the collection there are well over 100 garden varieties, along with an ever increasing selection of wild species from Chile.

We were delighted to supply a mirror of our National Collection of Alstroemeria to Pershore College in Worcestershire. The students have already dug out and created the flower beds which can be easily seen as you enter the college grounds on the left.

The project is progressing!
