    This 2-part bumblebee attractor pack combines a specially selected range of native wildflower seeds to attract bumblebees plus an informative bumblebee guide.

    The starting point of any wildlife garden is the selection of appropriate native plants which can attract pollinating insects - this easy to grow mix of native wildflowers provide an abundance of glorious wild flowers to enhance your garden and also attract bumblebees as well as beneficial insects.

    ADVICE

    When to sow
    Sow March to May or September to October and sow outdoors directly onto soil where they are to flower once the soil has warmed. For best results choose a poor, infertile soil in full sun and do not add fertiliser.
    Sowing guidelines
    Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine texture. Sprinkle seed thinly over the surface and rake lightly to ensure the seed is covered. Germination takes 14 - 21 days.

    As seedlings germinate, keep well watered and weed free. Flowers spring to autumn.

    In the autumn after the seed has been shed, clean up the growing area and water well. Perennials and biennial plants will continue to grow and flower the following year. Autumn sown seed will flower the following summer.
