Seedbom Birds, Bees and Butterflies
SeedBoms are friendly bombs that grow!
These grenades-shaped vessels, made with starch and natural fibres, contain a mixture of peat-free compost and seeds. The vessel splits open when thrown on the ground and the seeds grow where they land. The vessel degrades into the environment and only the plants are left behind.
Inside the Birds, Bees and Butterflies gift box you'll find four Seedboms: Pollinator Beebom, Urban Bloomer, Butterflybom and Featherbom.
The Pollinator Beebomb contains a seed mix of Cornflower, Vipers Bugloss, Wild Marjoram, Red Clover, Borage and Phacelia, which are all species found on the RHS Perfect for Pollinators List. The beautiful flowers of these plants are nectar rich and are a magnet for honey bees and bumblebees.
The Urban Bloomer contains a seed mix of Poppy, Corn Marigold, Cornflower, Forget-Me-Not, Oxeye Daisy and Red Campion. These seeds produce easy-to-grow wildflowers which attract pollinating insects and brighten up built up areas.
The Butterflybom contains a seed mix of Musk Mallow, Cornflower, Yarrow, Oxeye Daisy, Red Campion and Forget-me-not, which are all plants recommended as ‘larval food plants’. The colourful flowers of these plants are nectar rich and loved by butterflies as well as other pollinating insects.
The Featherbom contains a seed mix of Phacelia, Wild Carrot, Teasel, Millet, Common Knapweed, Cornflower and Birdsfoot Trefoil. These wildflowers not only attract bees and butterflies during the summer but also supports birds during the winter months through the production of grains and seeds
