Help Save the Bees with Wildflower Seeds
Bees are beautiful creatures that do amazing work. They are the world's most important pollinator for food crops and are feeding 90% of the world. By reaching billions of plants each year, they have a key role to play in our lives. Without bees pollinating these plants to allow them to grow, the food we eat would eventually run out.
Bees are not only an important source for humans - wild animals also rely on them. As well as farm grown fruit and vegetables, they pollinate many wild plants too, which are vital for animals to feed from.
Tragically, the bee population is in decline, due to a range of environmental issues including loss of biodiversity, destruction of habitat and the lack of foraging opportunities for wildlife.
As you can see, bees have a significant role within the life cycle of both humans and other animals. This is where you can do your part in helping bees survive.
Wildflower seeds make a wonderful addition to your garden. If you love having the gorgeous natural scents of essential oils in your home, then you will enjoy having wildflower seeds in your garden. The flowers are colourful, natural and smell fantastic.
