Bee Mix (100)
Wildflowers that bees will just love! This carefully selected seed mix is designed to attract honey bees, bumblebees and solitary bees (such as mason bees and mining bees), helping to support the biodiversity and ecosystem of your garden.
Each bag of bee mix contains 100 seed balls, each with approximately 30 bee-friendly wildflower seeds (see below for plant details), including Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram. With a coverage of 5 square metres per grab bag, these are ideal for larger garden areas.
Our bags are plastic free (made from paper) and can be home composted. With their colourful designs they can also work nicely as a wildlife gardening gift.
It’s time to re-wild!
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.
One bag of seed bombs will cover 5 square metres in a garden bed or 15-25 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn. See our FAQ page for more details on how to get the best from your seed balls.
