Bees are one of the most important creatures on our planet and we rely on them for almost two thirds of our food. Bee populations are under extreme threat due to the use of agricultural chemicals including the ones we use in our own back yards.
Lil'Bit Bee Seed Bombs use a technique that is hundreds of years old. Natural clay protects flower seeds from insects and birds.
The compost provides organic matter and nutrients. When conditions are right (water, sunlight), the seed ball will break down and the seeds will germinate.
Over time, they will grow into herbs and flowers that provide habitat and food for pollinators. Spring is the best time to "plant" them, to mimic what happens when these plants naturally produce seeds.
Bee Bombs should not actually be buried in soil, just placed (or dropped) on the soil surface.
Let nature take its course, and the seeds will germinate when conditions are good. Be patient - some of these plants may not bloom the first year, but will reward you with more blooms in subsequent years!
Lil'Bee Seed Bombs are sold in bags of 6 (packaged in biodegradable calico bags with a paper tag)
Seed mix: Mixed, Organic Annuals to be sewn in summer - NON INVASIVE SPIECIES.
Each ball is approx. inch in diameter and comes in a beautiful, linen, drawstring bag.
Safe to spread all over Australia - Li'l Bit has written authority from each state.
A Lil' Bit makes a big difference. For Founder, Liz, choosing to keep bees at their home on Phillip Island was a life-changing decision - falling in love with bees illuminated the broader and fragile ecosystem we are a part of, and the toxic effect on the natural world of unchecked and needless chemical use in our daily lives. Her Lil'Bit range of homemade, small-batch cleaning products are all created in her own kitchen, and proudly say no to a long list of nasties.
