FlowerBurst is the name of our very own Wildflower Seed Bombs!
At Make it Wild we are worried about bees and other pollinators. We want to give them all the help we can. Planting wild flower seeds is a great way to help!
We carefully make our wildflower seed bombs by hand in small batches from a mixture of wildflower seeds. We select from flowers native to the Yorkshire countryside. The seeds are combined with a special peat free, organic compost mixture to protect them from being eaten by birds. This also provides them with an early moisture boost as they start to germinate in Spring.
No gardening skills are required! Simply throw your FlowerBurst wildflower seed bombs on a bare patch of earth, or among existing flowers in a border.
FlowerBurst seed bombs come in a pretty cotton pouch. This can be safely composted at home when you have planted your wildflower seed bombs. Please note the pouch may be different from the ones shown in the pictures, depending on what fabric we have available.
Instructions are included. They can either be sown in Spring or Autumn, and will cover 3m sq.
