Food Forest Project Bee Bombs

3.50

These Bee Bombs have been hand rolled and made by The Food Forest Project team with 100% of all money raised going directly to helping us achieve our aim of planting food forests in every community in the UK to help heal the divide between people and the natural landscape.
Bringing communities closer together whilst growing food and creating habitat for wildlife.

These Bee Bombs have been made using soil and clay from our Shepton Mallet Food Forest Plot, as well as local organic honey bee seed mix.
The seed mix includes a mixture of the following wild flower seeds:

Centaurea cyanus Cornflower

Glebionis segetum Corn Marigold

Papaver rhoeas Corn Poppy

Lotus corniculatus Bird's-foot trefoil

Leucanthemum vulgare Oxeye Daisy

Dipsacus fullonum Teasel

Echium vulgare Viper's Bugloss

Reseda luteola Weld

Centaurea nigra Common Knapweed

Galium verum Lady's Bedstraw

Knautia arvensis Field Scabious

Origanum vulgare Wild Marjoram

Prunella vulgaris Selfheal

Silene dioica Red Campion

Silene flos-cuculi Ragged Robin

Silene latifolia White Campion

Stachys sylvatica Hedge Woundwort

Vicia cracca Tufted Vetch

Vicia sepium Bush Vetch

The Bee bomb label is also plantable having been made from recycled seed paper which you can then plant and grow into wildflowers, thus supporting our insect pollinators.
Seeds include: Catchfly, Daisy, Poppy, Sweet Alyssum, Spurred Snapdragon and Black-eyed Susan.

How to Plant your Bombs:

Just throw your Beebombs onto cleared soil and await the blossom of colour and the return of native bee and butterfly species.
Beebombs can be scattered at anytime of year but Autumn and Spring are optimum. 

How to Plant your label:

Simply place the paper on top of a pot of compost (preferably peat-free!) and water well. Spring and summer are the best times of year to do this so that you can have the flowers on show in your garden in the summer!  Place somewhere warm and light to germinate and keep moist – it is vital to successful germination not to let the paper dry out!  Once you have lots of seedlings, transplant the whole lot into a bigger pot and place on your patio in a sunny spot, et voilà!
