Settler Hives - SWEET PEA - LATHERS ODORATUS 'LITTLE SWEETHEART'
Nope it’s not a nickname this time (how would that fit in an envelope?) it’s one of the world's most beloved fragrant flowers. Easy peasy to grow up a light frame and enjoy the scent at head height. Comes in devine lilac (not the grandma colour, the stylish one) and sweetheart pinks and purples. Lives for less than a year but forever in your memory.
From the owners, Hayley & Roger Mason:
We have sourced our seeds from the best seed houses in the world.
We were chatting over winter about how much we were looking forward to spending more time outside and what we could do... so out came Roger's suggestion to keep bees. In our backyard!
The anticipation was real, it was an extra cold and long winter for the bees and we had to wait until the warm Spring. So we had a five months to research, you-tube and soak in as much information as we could about what we were literally about to get our hands into (bees!).
We're back in Australia now and those bees moved to a beautiful homestead. We've been too transient to have our own hive... until now! You can follow along for a laugh and bee facts on instagram @settlerhives.
Time to start planting flowers and feed the little workers!
