Adult plants transplanting of three selected nectariferous species (Hedysarum coronarium, Teucrium chamaedrys, Helleborous viridis) in the project area.
In these cases we preferred not to collect seeds because the time needed to obtain adult flowering plants would be too long with respect to project lifetime.
The early-flowering Helleborous viridis represents a very important source for bumblebees queens, especially when the flowering season is late.
