Help butterflies and bees and bring color to your neighborhood!
With the cheerfully colored seed 'bombs' you create a true sea of flowers and food paradise for bees and butterflies. Throw the Bombs everywhere you want flowers; in the garden, on the balcony or a vacant piece of land, wait for the rain (or use a watering can) and after a few weeks you, the bee and the butterflies will enjoy the most colorful flowers!
With organic wild flower seeds and natural clay, nutrients and color pigments. Sowing time: March to September
Bring color to your world!
Frequently Asked Questions: - How many Flower Bombs can you put in a pot? You can lose about 4 flower bombs on 1 m2.
You can just put them on the soil and throw water over them, then they will bloom on their own. You are not supposed to dig them in.
- What seed mix is in the bombs? The bombs contain an organic wild flower seed mix. This consists of the following: flower seeds: Phacelia, Flax, Yellow Mustard, Coriander, Flax Dotter, Mallow, Poppy, Bolderik, Cornflower, Chamomile, Persian Clover, Incarnate Clover, Alexandrian Clover.
Some seeds appear immediately at the beginning of the season (Mar/Apr), others only at the end (September/Oct), so you actually have flowers all season with 1 flower bomb! Sow: March to September.
- How long does it take for the flowers to emerge? That can take a few weeks after germination! Flowers only grow from spring when it gets warmer.
Mind you (!) they are wild flowers and they only grow outside with enough space, light and above all: food. You can grow them indoors and they will germinate, but to grow them further there is simply not enough food in a pot.
The Bombs are intended for outdoor use and then they work just like ordinary seeds and flowers in nature. A flower bomb has several seeds that germinate in different periods. Some seeds germinate in the spring, others in the summer or even after. This way the bees (and you) can enjoy flowers all season long.
In short, patience is required until nature does its work.
Tips to outsmart birds:
Place some bird food nearby, about 5 meters away from your Flower Bomb. The birds will then be more likely to approach the food and leave seed.
Make sure that there are no "smart" birds (crows, magpies and jackdaws) around when you want to plant the seeds. Because if you walk around and put things on the ground in such a smart bird's line of sight, you can be sure that they will look at it (and take it with them) shortly after you're gone!
Plant the seeds when the soil is moist and soft, then gently push them into the soil with your shoe. Note: certainly not completely buried (!), but cover them with a little reed, tree bark or a few leaves.
