Many of our bee species are threatened and under serious pressure for their very survival. We need the bees every bit as much as they need us. The good news is you can help increase the amount of bees circulating in your area by planting nectar-rich wildflowers, and the easiest way to do this is by using the Seed Mat for Bees

Sowing wild flower seeds plays a vital role in sustaining the bees.
  Often when starting wildflower areas the problem can be  stopping weeds from taking over. The Seed Mat for Bees has been scientifically proven to do just this!

Also referred to as a seed carpet, this Seed Mat for Bees is made up of two layers of biodegradable tissue paper with wildflower seeds between them.
When laid onto prepared soil and covered with a thin layer of clean soil or compost the mat will suppress weeds and encourage germination of flower seeds in the mat.

Honey Bees and Bumble Bees love the varieties within this mixture of perennial, annual and biennial wild flower species, as they are a great source of nectar and pollen.

Easy to plant...

1. Prepare and level the ground, remove any weeds and stones before planting.
(Mat can be cut down to fit area)

2. Lay the mat flat over the ground and cover with approximately 1 cm of clean soil or compost.

3. Initially water the area thoroughly to ensure the mat is soaked enough to activate germination.

4. Water regularly, especially throughout the warmer summer months.

For best results place in a warm, sunny location with good drainage.
Can also be used in containers and patio tubs.
Wait until the risk of frost has passed before planting.
