A mix of native wildflowers that bees will just love! This carefully selected mix is designed specifically to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram – all recommended as bee-friendly plants by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Also added sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.

How to use

Each bag of Mix contains 100 seed balls, enough to cover 5 metre square in a garden bed or 15-25 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball).

In a natural setting wildflower seeds can stay viable for many years and only burst into life when the conditions for that particular seed are just right. Not all seeds scattered at any one time will grow in the first year.

Wildflower seeds are best scattered in the Autumn. Early spring is also good, but if you’re scattering seed balls in late spring/summer we’d suggest storing the balls in a fridge for a couple of weeks prior to scattering to give them the cold blast that they’ll all love!

Wildflower seeds can be fussy about soil type and tend not to do well on soils or composts enriched with fertiliser (or where the ground is too dry/compact). We suggest scattering your seed balls in a few different locations in case there are some which are not optimal for wildflowers.

Keep the area around the base of your wildflowers free of other plants and grass.
