Beebombs make a fantastic gift all year round! They are handmade wildflower seed balls made from sheltering clay and sifted top soil, packed with 1000s of seeds with a 50/50 mix of perennial and annual native wildflower species and one pack will cover an area roughly 21 sq. ft / 2m².
No gardening skill is required as they 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. I tend to say 'cleared ground' as wildflowers are hardy and adaptable but slow growers. This means that they can be out-competed by faster growing grasses and perennial weeds at the critical early stages, so straight onto soil is best if possible.
The soil will help your Beebombs germinate and the clay will protect them as they dissipate.
Lots of sun and rain is of course important, as is time.
Each pack contains seeds of Yarrow, Common Knapweed, Wild Carrot, Lady's Bedstraw, Rough Hawkbit, Oxeye Daisy, Ribwort Plantain, Cowslip, Self Heal, Corn Marigold, Yellow Rattle, Common Sorrel, Salad Burnet, White Campion, Red Campion, Common Poppy, Cornflower and Corn Chamomile.
