How To Use
Beebombs are designed to ensure creating a diverse and thriving wildflower meadow is as easy as possible.
Dorset Wildflower Bee Bombs need no gardening skill, no tilling or sowing in the traditional sense. Just throw your Bee Bombs onto cleared soil and await the blossom of colour and return of native bee and butterfly species.
We say ‘cleared soil’ as wildflowers are slow growers compared to grasses and perennial weeds. This means that they can be out-competed at the critical early stages.
Bee Bombs can be scattered throughout the year, the clay protects them until they are ready to germinate. There are diverse opinions on this around the world and many say spring and autumn are particularly good times to start them growing. From experience, it doesn’t seem to make a lot of difference in the long run, although I am still testing.
Around 20% will start flowering in the first year. Biennials and Perennials in the mix will start blossoming in the 2nd year.
BeeBombs was created in Dorset and are made with love for the bee population. As their native habitats dwindle every year, they wanted to create a product which requires no gardening skills, and still able to support our precious British species.
Seedballs are an ancient method of farming that is less destructive to the wildlife buried in your garden, less labour intensive and increase germination rates. Used throughout the world for hundreds of years, they are now using this ingenious method to help #bringthebeesback.
One simple objective, with one simple solution. Let’s all support them in their efforts to save our wonderful bee population!
