What are Beebombs?
Hand made in Dorset, Beebombs are a mix of 18 British wildflower seeds, fine, sifted soil and locally sourced clay.
The seeds are native species and designated by the Royal Horticultural Society as "Perfect for Pollinators"
Where do Beebombs go?
Beebombs just need to be scattered onto cleared ground to create a wildflower meadow. Beebombs need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year. Once scattered, Beebombs just need lots of water, sun and time.
Why use 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. 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.
