We love our new Meant to Bee seed packet wedding favour! We think you and your wedding guests will too – they will also be happy to know they are doing their bit to help our bees!
The seed packet is made from quality recycled manilla paper, and measures 9 x 12 cm. The seeds inside are in a paper sachet and are perfect for bees – they are a mix of British wildflower species, and are also grown in the UK, so perfect for our UK bees! The seeds are also perennials, so they will come back every year – Field Scabious, Lesser Knapweed, Selfheal and Birdsfoot Trefoil. You will get around a gram of seeds.
The front of the seed packet is personalised with your wedding details, please advise these in the box above. The reverse of the seed packet has the sowing instructions.

About the Wildflower Bee Seeds
The seeds included are particularly loved by bees and all like a nice sunny spot in which to flower!
Produces lovely lilac pincushion-like flowers in the height of summer. It grows to about 2 ft high.
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!
