What are Beebombs?
Seedballs or seedbombs have been used for thousands of years as a natural farming technique and were 're-discovered' by Masanobu Fukuoka, a Japanese government plant scientist who is the forefather of modern natural farming techniques and was an inspirational writer and philosopher on the subject of natural farming.
We use the Fukuoka method for making our Beebombs which is universally accepted as the most effective and ethical process.
What is in Beebombs?
Beebombs are handmade in Dorset. Each pack of Beebombs contains hundreds of seeds and 18 species of wildflowers. The seeds are mixed with clay powder and locally sourced, unfortified soil. The clay supports and protects the seeds whilst they germinate and spreads them as it breaks down under watering.
Seedballs are an ancient method of farming that is less destructive to the wildlife buried in your garden, less labour intensive and increases germination rates. Used throughout the world for hundreds of years, we are now using this ingenious method to help #bringthebeesback
