Forum home Wildlife gardening


I've just seen a thread about sowing wild flower seeds  which reminded me that I received some Beebombs as a gift. My garden doesn't lend itself to wild flowers such as those in the Beebombs. Has anyone any suggestions as to what I could do with them? The instructions say that the ground needs to be clear but not necessarily dug, that once scattered you just leave them to do their own thing and that the flowers might not appear for 2 years (obviously biennial). Putting them where the ground will be mown such as a grass verge doesn't seem viable. It's a pity to waste them.

    Round here the council is so strapped for cash that the roadside verges haven’t been trimmed for three years. One of the “benefits”, I suppose,  of living in an economic recession is that our wildflowers are flourishing.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    The local graveyard looks like a nature reserve now. Ok they did it to save money, but it has been a positive.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Give them to a friend to plant? They should work ok in a raised bed or planter.
