Great Yellow Bumblebee Mix Seedball Tin

By

One of 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 mother’s day gifts. They will work well in window boxes, balcony pots, garden beds and wildlife gardens.

  • 20 Seed balls in each tin

Description

Great Yellow Bumblebee Mix - Contains 20 Seedballs

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.

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.

Great Yellow Bumblebee Mix  Contains:

Forget-me-not: Short annual with blue-grey flowers occasionally interspersed with pink flowers.Forget me nots have been used in the past for their astringent properties. The name Myosotis is derivation of the Latin and Greek for mouse and ears.

Corn Marigold:A medium height annual plant, its flowers are golden-yellow discs with prominent ray florets.

White Campion: White campion is sometime called 'Grave Flower' or 'Flower of the Dead' because it often grows in graveyards

Birdsfoot Trefoil: A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.

Poppy: The remembrance poppy is the common field poppy, one of the first wildflowers to colonise disturbed ground or fallow cornfields. It became identified with the battle zones of the First World War, or Flanders Fields, which were originally corn fields.

Chamomile: A cheerful cornfield flower, this lovely annual produces large, daisy-like flowers throughout summer and autumn and is highly attractive to pollinators.

Cornflower: Cornflowers are edible. They have a cucumber-like taste. Flowers can be consumed in the form of salad and tea, or used as a garnish.

How To Use

Seed balls don’t need planting or complex propagation – just scatter them where you want them to grow (preferably on top of soil or compost), and let nature take over! It really is that simple! Seed balls will also grow equally well in pots or other planters.

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.

Materials

Steel Tin

Each tin contains 20 balls and around 30 wildflower seeds per ball.
