NEW for Autumn 2020, our mini-meadow pots are an all in one gift set for anyone who loves wildflowers and garden wildlife. Everything you need is in the box, all you need to do is add water ♥
- A set of 3 biodegradable and compostable bamboo pots and saucers
- Peat-free coir discs
- 12 wildflower seed balls (in lovely new packaging!)
- Full instructions on how to use
The pots are best positioned outdoors, on a windowsill or garden table for example, and can be set up at any time of the year (although early Spring and Autumn are the very best times to start). All cardboard packaging (including the Seedball packs) are made from 100% recycled card and vegetable inks and 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. The sets are available in three varieties: Garden Meadow, Bee Mix and Butterfly Mix (see seed details below), and include full instructions of how to use on the back of the box.
SETTING UP YOUR POTS:
A beautiful mix of native wildflowers that is perfect for pollinators. Garden Meadow is a colourful combination of hardy annuals and perennials that will do well in most gardens, including those in more polluted areas (this mix would also be ideal for road verges). Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Common toadflax, Cornflower, Cowslip, Meadow cranesbill, Musk mallow, Oxeye daisy and Red campion, plus a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.
A mix of native wildflowers that bees will just love! This carefully selected mix is designed specifically to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds 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.
A mix of native wildflowers that are perfect for butterflies! This lovely collection of mostly purple, pink and blue flowers is designed to attract butterflies to our gardens, balconies and window boxes and uses only flowers recommended by Butterfly Conservation. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Purple Loosestrife, Forget-me-not, Musk mallow, Red campion and Yarrow, plus a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.
