Why Are We Doing This?
At Sussex Seed Balls, we believe wildflowers really, really matter. The more wildflowers we grow, the happier our pollinators - the birds, bees and other insects - will be. They depend on wildflowers for food throughout the year. The WWF tells us that 'on a single day in summer, one acre of wildflower meadow can contain 3 million flowers, producing 1 kg of nectar sugar. That’s enough to support nearly 96,000 honey bees per day.'
At Sussex Seed Balls, we want to celebrate our bees not just for World Bee Day but every day of the year! We would love to see wildflowers spring up on your patios, in your lawns, your borders and allotments, on our verges and central reservations, in parks and green spaces. By planting our Wildflower Mix conservation seed balls you are helping to rewild our local area.
What's In the Mix?
This is a UK native wildflower variety mix to be planted in spring. It is suitable for all soil types, with different seed varieties in the mix, favouring different conditions. Your flowers will establish themselves in their first year, and reach their best in their second or third years, given good growing conditions.
Please note that seed mix varieties are subject to availability & flower growth is not guaranteed. Seed mix will cover approximately 1m2 per ball.
The mix contains 21 beautiful UK native varieties.
