Which plants and flowers will attract bees the best?

Like I said in another topic in this forum: I am moving to a new house soon which has a big garden. Or rather it has a big boring lawn. For the next summer I want a garden full of flowers that will attract bees and keep them safe. So which plants and flowers will attract bees the best?

 

:D

And what a noble act is yours. Apparently bees are attracted by blue, white, yellow or purple flowers, some examples: fuchsia, daisy, sunflower, cosmos, gaillardia, asters. Plant them in a sunny spot where bees will come. Pesticides are out of business, if you have to use them start with the less toxic. Also fruit trees attract them. Regarding the herbs I suggest basil, mint, rosemary, thyme, borage and balm.

 

So, flowers must be well spotted, different colors, different shapes. Good lcuk with the new house and the new garden!
