Wildflower habitats are where bees and butterflies thrive, and make their lives. But 97% of native British Wildflower habitat has been lost in the last 60 years. This is a serious problem for biodiversity and wildflowers are crucial to biodiversity.
With Beebombs you can re-create these lost habitats and to help bring back the bees. Beebombs need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year.
Once scattered, you don't need to water or tend your Beebombs. Wild flowers are hardy and adaptable but grow slowly, therefore it is advisable to throw the seedbombs onto cleared ground, so that they are not out-competed by faster growing grasses and perennial weeds at the critical early stages.
The soil will help your Beebombs germinate and the clay will protect them as they break down. Lots of sun and rain is of course important, as is time.
