Get your garden buzzing with Seedball for National Bee Day 20th May

Our beloved bees have definitely earned their very own national day!  This coming May 20th is the day to buzz in acknowledgment of the vital role that bees play as pollinators – which in turn sustains whole ecosystems and diversity within our environment. 

Sadly, all species of bees have been on the decline in the UK.  We currently have 35 bee species under threat of extinction due to the reduction of pollinator friendly habitats and food sources as our urban and farming areas spread.

What can we do in our own garden?

The good news is that Seedball is here to help you to increase the abundance of UK native wildflowers in your own garden.  Wherever your garden grows there’s a Seedball for it, whether it be on a balcony a window box or even in a tin can!

Seedball makes supporting the bees in your own garden easy.  The seeds are protected in a ball of clay, with peat-free compost to aid germination and chilli powder to deter predators from eating the seeds. Simply scatter on bare soil and water! Over time with enough water and sunshine the ball will disperse and shoots will appear eventually growing into a beautiful wildflower garden. 

·       Simple choose a space and scatter the Seedballs it is as easy as that.

·       Wildflowers need less pampering than most garden plants, they prefer poorer soil meaning there is no need to add fertiliser to the soil.

·       Just give them an area, a pot, window box or a garden bed that receives at least half a day’s sunshine and regularly water

By following these simple steps you will be supporting the bees and local ecosystems.  The wildflowers look beautiful too, so you can have a positive environmental impact whilst bringing some natural beauty to your space!
