It’s time to re-wild!
• A set of 3 biodegradable and compostable bamboo pots and saucers
• Peat-free coir discs
• 12 wildflower seed balls
• Full instructions on how to use
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 wildflower seeds for bees from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram – all recommended as bee-friendly plants by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. We’ve also added a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.
Once set up, mini-meadow bamboo pots are best positioned outdoors, such as on a windowsill or garden table. They can be set up at any time of the year, although early Spring and Autumn are the very best times. All cardboard packaging (including the Seedball packs) are made from 100% recycled card, vegetable inks and they can be safely composted. The coir discs are made from the natural fibres found on the outer shell of coconuts which expand when water is added, turning into a great growing medium for seeds. The sets are available in three varieties: Garden Meadow, Bee Mix and Butterfly Mix, and include full instructions of how to use on the back of the box.
See our FAQ page for more details on how to get the best from your seed balls.
