What and why are Beebombs?
Huge swathes of wildflower habitat has been lost over the last 100 years
This loss of traditional habitat is having a devastating effect on Bee and Butterfly populations throughout the developed world. Biodiversity is crucial for many reasons and wildflowers are crucial to biodiversity.
With Beebombs you can re-create these lost habitats and to help bring the bees back.
Beebombs need no gardening skill and can be scattered straight onto open ground at any time of the year.
Once scattered, you don't need to water or tend your Beebombs. I tend to say 'cleared ground' as wildflowers are hardy and adaptable but slow growers. This means that they can be out-competed by faster growing grasses and perennial weeds at the critical early stages, so straight onto soil is best if possible.
The soil will help your Beebombs germinate and the clay will protect them as they dissipate.
Lots of sun and rain is of course important, as is time.
