Bee Merry

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.

Each tin of Bee Merry contains 20 seed balls, enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

RHS plants for pollinators, No chemicals, pesticides or neonics, made in the UK, peat free, easy to use gardening seed balls

What's Included

Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea)

A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with pink and purple flowers on spikes.
Height: 60-150cm
Flowers: June to September
Toxicity: Poisonous if eaten
Foxgloves are a really good ‘bridging plant’ as they bloom late May-June, a period when the bulbs have finished and the summer perennials are yet to be at their best!

Viper’s Bugloss (Echium vulgare)

A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with incredibly blue flowers emerging from pink buds.
Height: 30-90cm
Flowers: June to September
If you’re looking to do something a little different with your echium, why not try growing a low blue hedge with it, or scatter it amongst paving slabs to soften the landscape and add a punch of colour.

Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)

Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
Height: 10-45cm
Flowers: May to September
The trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!

Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare)

Aromatic perennial with dark purple buds and pinkish purple flowers.
Height: 30-60cm
Flowers: April to November
The Wild Marjoram is not only a wildflower, but can also double up as a pretty damn tasty pizza topping, along with your very best sweet tomatoes!

Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)

A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.
Height: 15-25cm
Flowers: May to October
Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into your summer baskets and patio pots?

What are Seedballs? How do they work?

What is a Seedball?

A ball made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.

Why use Seedballs?

The ball prevents the seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. Plus they’re super easy to use, no digging and no expert knowledge needed!

What's in the tin?

There are 20 balls in each tin, and around 30 seeds per ball.

How do I use Seedballs?

Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate!

What area will my Seedballs cover?

We would usually advise 20 seed balls per square metre, or 3-5 seed balls for a 35cm container.

Conservation

All seed is responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers, we only ever use peat-free compost and our steel tins are manufactured in London (with the help of a solar farm on the factory roof).
