Hand made in Dorset, Beebombs are a mix of 18 British wildflower seeds, fine, sifted soil and locally sourced clay.
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.
1000s of seeds from 18 native wildflower species, mixed with local, protective clay and sifted, nurturing top soil. 1 pack provides coverage for roughly 21 sq ft / 2m².
Beebombs just need to be scattered onto cleared ground to create a wildflower meadow that will bring the bees back.
Wildflower habitats are where bees and butterflies make their lives. This is serious for Britain. Serious for you and serious for your children. Biodiversity is crucial for many reasons and wildflowers are crucial to biodiversity. With Beebombs you can re-create these lost habitats and to help bring back the bees.
Beebombs need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year.
Once scattered, Beebombs just need lots of water, sun and time. 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. All Beebombs are 100% wildflower mix with no grasses.
Wildflowers are a little slower growers than many imported plants and flowers. Some will flower in the first year but most will not come out until the 2nd year.
Your patience will be rewarded with a beautiful wildflower meadow, attracting a range of native British pollinators and helping us bring the bees back.
Seedballs or seedbombs have been used for thousands of years as a natural farming technique and were 're-discovered' by a Japanese government plant scientist who is the forefather of modern natural farming techniques and was an inspirational writer and philosopher on the subject of natural farming. We use the Fukuoka method for making our Beebombs which is universally accepted as the most effective and ethical process.
Bee Bombs can be scattered throughout the year, the clay protects them until they are ready to germinate. There are diverse opinions on this around the world and many say spring and autumn are particularly good times to start them growing.
