Bee Seed Bombs - Pack of Six
Bees are one of the most important creatures on our planet and we rely on them for almost two thirds of our food. Bee populations are under extreme threat due to the use of agricultural chemicals including the ones we use in our own back yards.
Lil'Bit Bee Seed Bombs use a technique that is hundreds of years old. Natural clay protects flower seeds from insects and birdsThe compost provides organic matter and nutrients. When conditions are right (water, sunlight), the seed ball will break down and the seeds will germinate.
Over time, they will grow into herbs and flowers that provide habitat and food for pollinators. Spring is the best time to "plant" them, to mimic what happens when these plants naturally produce seeds.
- Size: pack of six
- Dimensions: each ball is approx. inch in diameter and comes in a beautiful, linen, drawstring bag
- Country of manufacture: Australia
- Packaging: unbleached, calico bag - biodegradable
Directions: Bee bombs should not actually be buried in soil, just placed (or dropped) on the soil surface. Let nature take its course, and the seeds will germinate when conditions are good. Be patient - some of these plants may not bloom the first year, but will reward you with more blooms in subsequent years!
Two years ago I decided to try my hand at beekeeping and when I started I was not expecting them to change my entire life. Also unexpected was learning just how much impact these little creatures have on our lives.
My new hobby led to a much greater understanding of our ecology and our personal effect on it. I then knew I had to make some changes in my life.
Then it hit me: If everyone made a 'little bit' of a change, the overall effect would be enormous!
