|Gifted|Whilst looking for a present for my boyfriend’s Mum a while back I came across these Bee Bombs. If you are a plant lover, you will love this and they make ideal little birthday gift for anyone with green fingers. Since WW2 97% of the Uk’s Bee and butterfly habitat has been lost, Bee Bomb aims to help aid it’s recovery by contributing back to the biodiversity in Great Britain. The company hand makes each seed ball using a combination of 18 different British wildflower seeds that encourages lots of pollination once grown.
If you’re not very green fingered this product is also really simple to use. All you need to do is scatter the seed balls evenly onto cleared ground or in large pots. And watch your wildflower meadow come to life. The method of using seed balls is a less destructive and labour intensive method which increases germination rates. They do take some time to establish themselves but once fully grown you can have your own meadow.
We trailed planting some into seed trays in the green house as well as outside in some clear patches and the ones in the greenhouse have gone crazy! So, I thought I would include a picture of them below. You can see just how many different types of flower there are from all of the different leaves and shapes there are. We are planting these out in the next few days, so fingers crossed they grow nice and big.
Each pack of Bee Bombs retail for £7.99, you can find their website HERE plus I have also spotted these in my local garden centre so make sure you keep an eye out for them. They also have an Instagram that you can find here where they post cute pictures of their products. If we can donate a small section of our gardens to the bees we can really make a difference to their conservation.
*This is a gifted collaboration. The product was sent to me in exchange for a blog post. Thanks so much to Bee Bomb for wanting to work with me. All of the information I have used in this post has come from their website and information leaflets.
Thanks for taking a look,
