About Apricot Honey

Gaillardia Apricot Honey is a hardy perennial that needs to be planted in a sunny spot in fertile soil.

Apricot honey produces large soft honey coloured daisy flowers all summer, from May until frost.

It grows to around 70cm high by 80cm wide when mature. It is a herbaceous perennial – this means that it dies back to ground level in the winter and grows again in the spring.

Apricot Honey is perfect for a border or it can be grown in a large container.

It is also really popular with bees, so give our pollinator friends a hand by planting one in your garden!



Chelsea Flower Show

Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants will be launching Gaillardia Apricot Honey at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show 2018 on Monday 22nd May. Look out for Apricot Honey on the TV, in newspapers and magazines! You might just see a bee visiting!
