What are Bee Bombs?

 

In short: Bee bombs are tiny ecosystems. They are small balls of clay and peat free soil which contain all the nutrients needed for the seeds inside them to grow once thrown on land and watered by rain.  

In some more detail:  They are an easy and environmental way to bring more bees, butterflies and a range of colour to your garden where all that you need to do is pick a spot you would like them to grow and throw or scatter Honeybee’s bee bombs on to it. Honeybee bomb’s bee bombs contain hundreds of RHS recommended wildflower seeds specifically chosen for the UK environment, uses 100% peat free compost and natural clay. Originally used to fertilise crops and redeveloped by scientist and farmer Masanobu Fukuoka as part of his ‘natural farming’ method. It is both simple yet effective in its’ ability to turn what was once a neglected or unused piece of land into a wildflower garden.

This method became more into the public eye and popular with environmental activists (guerrilla gardeners) who were looking for an easy way to transform urban areas with neglected patches of land into blooming patches of wildflowers. It truly is an easy way to add some colour to your garden, as well as provide more nectar for bees and other pollinating insects.

Honeybee bombs use Royal Horticultural Society recommended wildflower seeds specifically chosen to encourage and promote bee pollination. We use our own mixture of peat free compost to sustain peat ecosystems and natural red clay to protect and help grow the wildflower seeds.

To limit waste as much as possible we have ‘packaged’ our bee bombs in 100% cotton and included a free beeswax block to turn your cotton fabric into your own beeswax food wrap. This is both 100% recyclable, sustainable and a perfect alternative to plastic and clingfilm for keeping your fruit, veg or sandwich fresh.
