1000s of seeds from 18 native wildflower species, mixed with local, protective clay and sifted, nurturing top soil. 1 pack provides coverage for roughly 21 sq ft / 2m².
97% of native British Wildflower habitat has been lost since World War 2.
Wildflower habitats are where bees and butterflies make their lives. This is serious for Britain. Serious for you and serious for your children. Biodiversity is crucial for many reasons and wildflowers are crucial to biodiversity.
With Beebombs you can re-create these lost habitats and to help bring back the bees.
Beebombs need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year.
Once scattered, Beebombs just need lots of water, sun and time. Wildflowers are hardy and adaptable but slow growers. This means that they can be out-competed by faster growing grasses and perennial weeds at the critical early stages, so straight onto soil is best if possible.
The soil will help your Beebombs germinate and the clay will protect them as they dissipate.
Lots of sun and rain is of course important, as is time.
Beebombs use only sustainable packaging. No ‘one use plastics’ used.
How to create a Bee friendly Garden
Create diverse plantings
A variety of pollen rich flowers of different shapes with a range of flowering periods from early spring to late summer
Plant wildflowers and native species
Native wildflowers and plants have grown alongside native insects and some species prefer native plants. Wildflowers can be easier to grow and more resistant to pests.
Don’t use pesticides
Common insecticides containing neonicotinoids (thiacloprid and acetamiprid) kill bees! They are still approved for home and garden use and are available today at most garden centres and DIY shops. Read the label and please avoid using them.
Keep lawn weeds
Dandelions and white clover attract honeybees. If you can’t stand the thought of weeds in the lawn reserve an area that’s out of the way.
