Seedballs to Keep The Bees Buzzing

Bees have been dying at an alarming rate. Since 1990, the UK has lost 13 species of bee and more are threatened by extinction.. The pollination services that bees naturally provide us with are invaluable. Without enough bees, not only would honey supplies be down, but basic crops like apples would be threatened.

But why are we telling you all of this? Well, we’re determined to do what we can to help. Interestingly enough, one of the best things you can do to help sustain the bee population is to simply plant wildflowers! That’s where our seed-based promotional products come in.

Seedball Tin - Save the Bees Wildflower Mix

One of our favourite (and by far the most fun) ways to plant wildflowers is with our branded seedballs. The tiny balls are made from a mixture of seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chilli powder, which create a protective casing against seed predators. To be planted, they simply need to be scattered on fertile soil, and nature will do the rest.

The best thing about our seedballs is that they can be embedded with a choice of 6 different wildflower seed combinations.  They all provide food and habitat for bees and other pollinators but we have formulated a special Bee Mix that’s created with 5 native flowers recommended by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust

This innovative product has won two industry awards at the 2017 Garden Retail Awards, scooping first prize in the Gift of the Year 2017 in the eco-friendly category and Best New Gardening Growing Product.

  • The ultimate in sustainable corporate gifts

 Paribas used tins of our Bee Mix Seedballs as giveaways at a conference. Using them as a corporate gift helped spark conversation about sustainability during the event. Seedballs are phenomenal green promotional products for just about any company looking to boost its association with sustainability. What’s even better, is that once the seedballs are planted, customers are able to develop a relationship with the brand as they nurture and observe the plants that stem.
