We’re sooo excited to be working with the BBC to supply a million wildflower seed balls as part of The Green Planet TV series. Packs will be available for free to schools across the UK!
To find out more and order a pack for your classroom visit the BBC Bitesize Website.
Seedball HQ is bursting with Green Planets!!
Over the last 50 years we have lost around 98% of our wildflower meadows, these natural sites were important wildlife rich habitats, teaming with biodiversity.
Wildflowers provide important food for our native insects, not only nectar and pollen for bees, butterflies and moths but also caterpillars that feed on the plants.
Getting kids involved with growing native wildflowers in spaces like schools can really help redress the balance.
You will be amazed at how many visitors your blooms will attract once the buzz gets out!
“No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced”
We need our pollinators, without them there would be none of the foods and plants we enjoy, strawberries, apples, beans, peaches, flowers and trees.
