Build a bee haven with a mix of native, pollinator-friendly wildflowers. This carefully selected seed mix is designed specifically to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a range of bee-friendly plants as recommended by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, including Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram. The Bee Mix also includes a sprinkling of annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly. With this seed mix, bees will be happily buzzing around your wildflowers in no time.
Your garden, balcony or window box will soon be fluttering with beautiful butterflies if you scatter these seedballs. This collection of mostly purple, pink and blue flowers recommended by Butterfly Conservation are designed to attract these elegant, winged creatures. Butterflies are not only a pleasure to see but also do a great deal for the environment as important pollinators. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Purple Loosestrife, Forget-me-not, Musk mallow, Red campion and Yarrow, plus a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.
Create a picturesque wildlife paradise in any available space with this beautiful mix of native wildflowers. Urban Meadow is the hardiest of our wildflower mixes, so is suitable for any available space whether that’s a window box in a city apartment or a courtyard. Each seedball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Common toadflax, Cornflower, Cowslip, Meadow cranesbill, Musk mallow, Oxeye daisy and Red campion, plus a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly. This beautiful colour combination of annuals and perennials are developed in collaboration with River of Flowers – an inspiring non-profit organisation supporting rewilding of urban landscapes.
This mix of British native wildflowers are perfect for shadier spots that only receive sparse amounts of sunlight. These sturdy seeds will still grow equally well in areas of full sun but are able to withstand less natural light than most wildflowers, adding a burst of colour and wildlife to shaded areas. Each ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mixture of Bellflower, Forget-me-not, Meadow buttercup, Meadowsweet, Oxeye daisy, Ragged robin and Red campion.
Inside this beautiful bee embossed gift box are two wildflower tins, love and bees. A perfect gift for bee-lovers to add a buzz to their outdoor space.
Our seed balls are super easy to use and grow, simply scatter onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn and watch your mini meadow grow. Each tin contains 20 seed balls (each with approximately 75 seeds) bursting with UK native wildflower seeds.
This seed mix will bring a burst of blue wildflowers to attract bees to your balconies and garden beds. Bees are naturally drawn to the colour blue and ultraviolet light, so will be happily buzzing around in no time.
Our buzzing friends simply love this mix of wildflower seeds, with a choice of wildflowers designed to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees. As recommended by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, each seed ball contains a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram, as well as a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.
