Beebombs Native Wildflower Seedballs - Bring the Bees Back
Coverage: 21 sq ft / 2m²
Spring is the perfect time of year to scatter your wildflower beebombs. It's a great family activity too! I loved watching the wildflowers grow in the boarders on our garden last year, I can't wait for the same this year. I had the most beautiful display of wildflowers and many bees and butterflies visited. I love these beebombs they make it so easy! Colette @ Vera-Bee

What are Beebombs?
Beebombs are handmade wildflower seedballs.
Beebombs need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year.
Once scattered, you don't need to water or tend your Beebombs. Beebombs recommend 'cleared ground' as wildflowers are hardy and adaptable but slow growers. This means that they can be out-competed by faster growing grasses and perennial weeds at the critical early stages, so straight onto soil is best if possible.
The soil will help your Beebombs germinate and the clay will protect them as they dissipate.
Lots of sun and rain is of course important, as is time.
How to scatter your Beebombs?
These Wildflower Beebombs need no gardening skill, no tilling or sowing in the traditional sense. The seeds are combined with nurturing sifted soil and sheltering local clay to protect them from predators.
Just throw your Beebombs onto cleared soil and await the blossom of colour and the return of native bee and butterfly species.
Beebombs can be scattered at anytime of year but Autumn and Spring are optimum.
You can help bring the Bees Back!
97% of natural bee and butterfly habitat has been lost in the UK since WW2.
97%. Ninety seven percent. It's frightening and critical.
With your help, we can start to restore the lost wildflower habitat and make an important contribution to the biodiversity of Great Britain.
Hand made in Dorset, Beebombs are a mix of 18 British wildflower seeds, fine, sifted soil and locally sourced clay. These seeds are native species and designated by the Royal Horticultural Society as "Perfect for Pollinators"
Beebombs just need to be scattered onto cleared ground to create a wildflower meadow that will #bringthebeesback
About Beebombs Creator
Ben Davidson was born in Dorset and after many years abroad and in the hustle of London, returned to bring up his daughter where the rolling green hills meet the sandy beaches of Dorset.
Learning of the tragic decline of bee and butterfly habitat, across the industrialised world, he wanted to find a way to help restore some of the lost meadows of Britain.
Driven by his love for nature and his memories of a childhood spent chasing newts, building camps and generally exploring the ancient heathland of Dorset. Ben both makes and promotes the Beebombs himself. As well as cleaning up afterward.Beebombs use only sustainable packaging.
