Bee mix mini-meadow pots by Seedball is a mix of native wildflowers that bees and pollinators will love! The carefully selected mix is designed specifically to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees.
The perfect gift set with everything you need to start growing natural wildflowers, all you need to do is add water!
Set includes 3 biodegradable and compostable bamboo pots and saucers, peat-free coir discs and 12 wildflower seed balls in a tube.
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper's Bugloss and Wild Marjoram which are all recommended as bee friendly plants by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
Bee mix Seedballs also contain a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals such as Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn Marigold, and Night flowering catchfly.
What's great about Seedballs is that the ball prevents the seeds from being eaten by birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your wildflowers growing. They are also super easy to use, so no digging or expert knowledge needed!
Seedballs are 100% plastic free, natural and eco-friendly - what's not to love?
The pots are best positioned outdoors, on a windowsill or garden table and can be set up at any time of the year. Although Spring and Autumn are the best times to start. The coir discs are made from the natural fibres found on the outer shell of coconuts which expand when water is added, turning them into a great growing medium.
All the seeds used in Seedballs are responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers and only ever use peat-free compost.
Vegetable ink and plastic free, recycled cardboard which can be composted.
How To Use
What to do?
Remove the contents from the box and pop the pots on their saucers.
In a bowl or bucket, pour 1 litre of water onto the 2 discs and leave for 10 minutes for the discs to fully expand. Add more water if needed but try to avoid a soggy consistency.
Evenly distribute the soil between the three pots.
Scatter 3-4 balls on top of the soil in each pot.
Gently water the balls, being careful that they stay on top of the soil. Water often enough to keep the soil damp. Growth should start within 2-3 weeks.
For best results, scatter in Spring or Autumn and keep pots outdoors.
The pots, saucers and all card packaging can be composted.
