Native, wildflower seedballs, handmade in Dorset
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. Our seeds are native species and designated by the Royal Horticultural Society as “Perfect for Pollinators”
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. I tend to say ‘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.
