Why You Should Consider Planting Wildflower & Bee Seeds
Bees are natural pollinators and can help facilitate the proper growth and health of various plants and flowers. With the number of bees declining in both Europe and North America, now is the perfect time to grow wild flower meadows! Growing a wildflower meadow is a helpful solution for boosting the bee population. Studies show that an array of wildflowers can help increase bees' survival rate. You can read more about this study in Nature here.
Bees serve an important function in our natural ecosystem. Studies like the one mentioned above have shown a strong link between bumblebee survival and habitat restoration. Planting wildflower seeds helps increase bee vitality and adds an aesthetically pleasing look to your garden. These seeds bloom in multiple seasons and promote a longer growth cycle.
Bee preservation is an ongoing issue in worldwide conservation efforts. Adding wildflowers to your garden plant array goes a long way in supporting bees and allowing them to fulfil their natural pollination behaviours. It also helps support biodiversity and the ecosystem as a whole. We recommend adding native British wildflower seeds to your garden to help support the natural environment. They also help to introduce more vivid colours and beauty to your display.
