We absolutely love this seed packet design, created by our inhouse designer, Ben – recycled bee and flowers wedding favour seeds. A wedding favour to help save our bees! The white seed packet is 100% recycled and measures 9 x 12 cm. It is personalised with your details on the back – please advise them in the box above. The wildflower seeds inside are perfect for our native bees – Field Scabious, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Selfheal and Lesser Knapweed. All are British wildflower species and the seeds have been grown in the UK. The plants are also perennial so will come back year after year. The sowing instructions for the seeds are on the back of the packet
How to sow wildflower bee seeds
Our bee seeds are very easy to sow – simply choose a sunny, weed-free spot (or a pot of peat-free compost) and sprinkle on the seeds. No need to cover them with soil/compost – just gently press them into the soil. Water well and wait for them to germinate, watering if necessary.
One of our favourite wildflowers here at Wildflower Favours! This wildflower products many stems of gorgeous purple flowers that the bees absolutely love! Can grow as high as 3 ft.
Birdsfoot Trefoil is a low-growing wildflower found in pastures and meadows and other grassland. Its yellow pea-like flowers are magnets for bees!
Selfheal is also very popular with bees. Again, it is often found in the wild in grassland, meadows and verges and its low-growing purple flowers are very striking. Hundreds of years ago Selfheal was thought to be good for curing sore throats because its flower head was thought to resemble a throat!
