Mini Meadow Bamboo Pots – RRP £20
A lovely Christmas gift for anyone looking to create a wildlife paradise, no matter how much space they have, is the Mini Meadow Bamboo Pot kit.
The kits consist of:
- A set of three biodegradable and compostable bamboo pots and saucers
- Peat-free coir discs

- Full instructions on how to use the kit.
These super eco and wildlife friendly sets have everything needed to create a mini-meadow, including the soil. All of the cardboard packaging is made from 100% recycled card and is also fully compostable. The coir discs, made from natural coconut fibre, expand when water is added, turning into the perfect growing medium.
The sets are available in three varieties:
- Bee Mix (Foxglove, Birdsfoot trefoil, Red clover, Wild Marjoram, Viper’s-Bugloss)
- Butterfly Mix (Forget-me-not, Red Campion, Yarrow, Purple Loosetrife, Musk Mallow)

This Christmas, Seedball has teamed up with the Devon based company, Beevive, to create a great gift box for bee lovers of all ages.
The Bee Rescue Set includes a Limited Edition Gold Bee Mix tin containing 20 seed balls packed with wildflowers that are best for helping bees. These seeds include Viper’s-Bugloss, Foxglove, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Red Clover, Wild Marjoram and a sprinkling of annuals including Cornflower and Chamomile.
The gift set is completed with a refillable glass container of sugar solution for helping to revive tired bees when you’re out and about, which is held on a keyring in an elegant aluminium casing.
