All over the world, biodiversity is facing a huge crisis. So many parts of the environment depend on other parts but our world has got out of sync. Biodiversity is the variety of animals, plants, fungi, and microorganisms that make up the natural world. Each of these species and organisms work together to maintain life. By a simple act of sowing wildflowers you can do something important for the biodiversity in your space, by providing the wildflower food sources that the insects and other creatures rely on for survival.
This seed packet is recycled and made from quality 130 gsm paper – manilla or white (please select) – and contains British wildflower seeds that are perfect for butterflies and bees and other insects. The seeds are in a paper sachet, not plastic and foil, so the packet and sachet are completely recyclable after the seeds have been sown. The seed packets measure 9 x 12 cm. Sowing instructions are printed on the back. The seeds are also viable for a few years, just store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.
