Our Aim is to Save Pollinators

NEW Bee Nov 13We provide very high quality packs of seeds that have been carefully chosen to produce flowers that are rich in pollen and nectar.

These will appeal to bees and butterflies and bring them to your outside spaces. Whether you live in the country or the city, have a garden or a window box you can help pollinators by providing them with what they need – pollen and nectar.

All our seeds are insecticide free and are a 100% UK native wild flowers. We only buy from the best UK seed suppliers to make sure these are the highest quality mixes we can find.  They are an RHS Plants for Pollinators Wildflower mix.

The seeds are easily sown – just thinly scatter the seeds over the area where you want them to grow, and cover them with a thin layer of soil. Keep them watered and they’ll grow quickly.

 

Why is it Important to Plant Seeds?

Bees are wonderful, hard working creatures that are responsible for pollinating 70% of our favourite fruit and vegetables.

All through the warmer months the bees pollinate simply, quietly, efficiently and naturally, helping boost crop yields whether on large farms or a domestic vegetable patch.

But they are in danger.  As you may have heard, in recent years there has been a worrying collapse in the bee population. 

There are many theories about why this has happened.  Pesticides and insecticides used in intensive farming have been blamed, particularly a group called Neonicotinoids, as have parasites like the varroa mite but a very important cause is a reduction in flower-rich habitats for the bees to visit. Huge areas have been lost in the last 80 years, including 98% of wild flower meadows.

By sowing our seeds you’ll be helping to reverse this by growing the valuable wild flowers that bees and butterflies will love. Plus you’ll be making your surroundings more beautiful too!
