Have you recently claimed your free #SeedsForBees and greetings card from our website? Here’s the what to do next.
These seeds are ideal for planting in the early Autumn or Spring. So up until the end of October is a good time to get them in the ground.
This British wildflower seed mix contains – Annuals: Cornflower, Corn Cockle, Corn Chamomile and Field Poppy. Perennials: Knapweed, Ox-eye Daisy, Red Campion and Vipers Bugloss.
What to do…
Lightly rake your soil – pots and containers are a good way to plant seeds in an urban location or somewhere with little space – every little wildflower patch will make a difference for the bees.
Evenly sprinkle the seeds.
Water for a few days so the seeds begin to germinate.
…and then look forward to the colourful array in the spring!
You should attract the early bumblebee queens foraging for pollen and nectar in late February.
