Addenda® plants: a green paradise for insects

Bees, we can’t live without them. 80% of the plants on earth depend on these flying insects. Bees pollinate plants and allow them to reproduce. In addition, bees are necessary for pollinating our garden and agricultural crops. For example, without bees we would not be able to eat nuts, fruits, vegetables and chocolate. Unfortunately, large numbers of bees are dying worldwide and this has a major impact on our food chain. It starts with food for the bee: flowering plants. You can see it as a virtuous circle: a healthy plant = food for the bees, healthy bees = food for humans. That is why Addenda is committed to healthy plants that are safe for animals and the environment. Addenda’s growers strive to grow the best and most beautiful types of plants. But this entire process is not just about the plant production of plants – they also care for people, animals and the environment.
The plants are grown as sustainably as possible. For example, by reusing plastic and using biodegradable labels. Pesticides are also used during cultivation. This prevents the plants from suffering from diseases and pests. The crop protection products that our growers use are exclusively approved by the CTGB (College for the authorization of plant protection products and biocides). The CTGB assesses whether plant protection products are safe for humans, animals and the environment and whether they are effective. Based on international agreements, they determine whether a substance may be used.

Biodiversity – Tiles out, plants in

Biodiversity – Tiles out, plants in We see it a lot these days: modern gardens with a lots of stone and little greenery. But it is precisely that green, the different types of plants, animals, micro-organisms and fungi, that are so important for humans, animals and the environment. Private gardens are the main food source for bees and other insects. Bees find their food on the plants in your garden. Lots of greenery increases the quality of our lives and that of our surroundings, and also looks great in your garden. Fill your garden or balcony with different, nectar-rich plants (Hebe is one of them 😉) and install insect hotels, for example.
