Bumblebee Box - Green Box
Also Available In:
Wildflowers that wildlife will just love! These carefully selected Seedball mixes are designed to attract bees, butterflies and other wildlife to your garden, helping to support the biodiversity and ecosystem.
Each box is 5.8cm x 3.7cm x 1.5cm (like an old small matchbox size), and contains 6 seed balls to grow beautiful wildflowers in a window box, balcony pot or garden bed. One box will cover 1-2 pots. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds.
A little card is also included to explain what the balls are and how to use them- they’re incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil or compost (no digging or expertise required!) and nature will do the rest.
Short Haired Bumblebee: One of three new tins launched to celebrate the anniversary of the first Seedball tin in 2013. As Seedball’s mission is to help and inspire more people to grow wildflowers in their gardens for pollinators, they wanted to use the anniversary tins to help to raise awareness about declining British bee species, and the need to keep scattering seed balls!
