Start your own pollinator haven!
You may have noticed we included some padg seed paper with your padg purchase :)
This seed paper is pretty special, it's hand made using recycled paper. You'll find British wild flower seeds embedded within it, it's pretty nifty if you ask us!
The seeds LOVE warm sunlight, ideally inside on a window sill. Make sure you keep the paper nice and moist, it will slowly disintegrate and the seeds will start to germinate wahoo! - They are best planted in the summer but will last for over 2 years if kept dry. So if you want, you can save them for next years season :)
The mix of flower seeds include - Musk Mallow, Ox-eye Daisy, Red Campion and Selfheal all perfect flowers for pollinators.
We encourage you start your own bee and pollinator haven yourself and the padg seed paper will help start you off! #padgpollinatorhaven #savethebees
Unfortunately In the UK, we have lost 97% of our wildflower meadows in the last 40 years. This has had devastating effects to our bee population. With the help of amazing people like you, we can change this.
Planting wild flowers is an awesome way to make a positive difference and it looks super nice too :) double WIN!
But why save the bees?
Thanks to bees we can enjoy a range of foods from apples and pears to coffee and vanilla, to name just a few. Have you got a fave pair of jeans or t-shirt? Well thank the bees, they pollinated the cotton plant that made them!
They are so important to the worlds ecosystem. if you want to learn more check out the links below:
