Bumblebee Collection (Pack of 3)

Three new tins launched to celebrate the anniversary of the first Seedball tin in 2013. As Seedball’s mission is to help and inspire more people to grow wildflowers in their gardens for pollinators, we wanted to use our anniversary tins to help to raise awareness about three declining British bee species, and the need to keep scattering seed balls!

Each tin contains 20 seed balls, each with approximately 30 bumblebee-friendly wildflower seeds (see below for plant details). These make for lovely gardening gifts, bee gifts, eco friendly gifts or birthday gifts. They will work well in window boxes, balcony pots, garden beds and wildlife gardens.

It’s time to rewild!

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

3 tins of Bumblebee Mix.

One tin of seed bombs will cover 1 square metre in a garden bed or 3-5 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. 

Short-Haired Bumblebee Mix

The Short-Haired Bumblebee was declared extinct in 2000, but since 2011 a successful reintroduction project has been underway in Dungeness in Southern England. The project has also been working to protect and improve local wild habitats, which has benefited a number of other local bumblebee species as well. This mix includes 7 super bee friendly flowers: Cornflower, Red Campion, Oxeye Daisy, Wild Marjoram, Viper’s Bugloss, Red Clover and Birdsfoot Trefoil.

Shrill Carder Bumblebee Mix

The Shrill Carder Bee is one of the UK’s rarest bumblebees, and can only be spotted in a handful of locations in Southern Wales and Southern England. The mix includes 7 super bee friendly flowers: Common Knapweed, Great Burnet, Cowslip, Self Heal, Meadowsweet, Birdsfoot Trefoil and Buttercup.

Great Yellow Bumblebee Mix

The Great Yellow Bumblebee’s distribution has declined by 80% in the last 50 years, and can now only be seen in the Scottish Highlands and Islands. The mix includes 7 super bee friendly flowers: Forget-me-not, Corn Marigold, White Campion, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Cornflower, Poppy and Chamomile.

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).

See our FAQ page for our full guide to growing wildflowers from Seedball.
