What and why are Beebombs?
97% of native British Wildflower habitat has been lost since World War 2.
Wildflower habitats are where bees and butterflies make their lives. This is serious for Britain. Serious for you and serious for your children. Biodiversity is crucial for many reasons and wildflowers are crucial to biodiversity.
With Beebombs you can re-create these lost habitats and to help bring back the bees.
We handmake our seedballs from sheltering local clay and sifted compost, packed with a range of native wildflower species' seeds.
Almost all our seeds are on the Royal Horticultural Society's 'Perfect for Pollinators' list and we are constantly improving the recipe to ensure you get an aesthetically beautiful and a wildlife enticing garden from your use Beebombs.

Beebombs need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year. Spring and Autumn are optimum though.
Once scattered, you don't need to water or tend your Beebombs. Cleared ground is best but does not need to be tilled.
The compost will help your Beebombs germinate and the clay will protect them as they dissipate.
Some sun and rain is of course important, as is time.
Wildflowers are a little slower growers than many imported plants and flowers. Some will flower in the first year but most will not come out until the 2nd year.
Your patience will be rewarded with a beautiful wildflower meadow, attracting a range of native British pollinators and helping us #bringthebeesback
