Our British bees are in a bad way, with numbers declining dramatically, so they need as much help from us as they can. This recycled Meant to Bee seed packet wedding favour contains wildflower seeds that will attract bees to your garden (Selfheal, Red Campion, Oxeye Daisy and Musk Mallow) and is the perfect way to encourage your guests to do their bit to save our bees! The seeds can be sown directly on to the soil or are great for growing in pots too (if your guests have no garden). The seeds have also been grown in the UK and are British wildflower species. You will get around a gram of seeds.
Each seed packet wedding favour is made from recycled manilla paper and measures 9 x 12 cm. The seeds are inside in a sealed plastic wallet and the sowing instructions are printed on the back. Please advise your wedding details in the box above.
How to sow wildflower seeds
These wildflower seeds are so 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.
