Mini Guide to Pollinating Bees with Native Wildflower Seeds

£7.49
SKU: AP1

The Pollinating Bee Attractor Pack contains a specially selected range of wildflower seeds to attract pollinating bees. The seeds are safe for pollinators as they are grown without bee & butterfly killing neonicotinoids. It also includes an informative guide to UK solitary bee species.

Over the past 60 years, the UK has lost 97% of its species-rich wildflower meadows. Hence these native wildflower seeds are a great gift that helps the environment. It does this by reintroducing a selection of appropriate native plants that can attract a range of pollinating bees, including honey bees, bumblebees and the large family of solitary bees that include mining orchard bees and leafcutter bees.

All these pollinators are valuable to the gardener, and increasing their numbers will boost crops, fruit and vegetables. Most bee species are non-aggressive, and their presence in the garden is essential for all plants' pollination. Without pollinators, the whole food chain will break down, which would eventually affect us.

Encouraging these insects with the flowers of native wildflowers is a great way of helping bees and being beautiful to look at. You may sow the seeds in Spring or Autumn.
