Our Gardens

Our UK Gardens cover an area of over 270,000 hectares or 667,00 Acres, that’s more than all the UK nature reserves combined, let’s just imagine if every garden had an area for wildflowers starting with a Pot or Planter.

City Bees

You live in the City, you have a small garden or no garden? No problem just plant your Seedmat into a Pot or Balcony Planter 🙂 Even these small havens of wildflowers are known to make a difference. Urban Bees do surprisingly well in our cities.

Get Involved

Yes we can make a difference, start by Planting a Pot and Bee a hero, helping to protect and feed our pollinators and bring wildlife back into our urban spaces and gardens.

Where has the buzz gone in the garden?

97% of our wildflower habitats have been lost and along with them most of our Bee species have greatly declined, don’t let that gentle buzz of a bee became a distant memory, together we can help overturn these losses.

The main reasons accredited for Bees globally disappearing at an alarming rate are pesticides, parasites, disease, habitat loss and monoculture farming methods.

What we aim to do

Our aim is to make growing wildflowers from seed simple and more accessible for everybody, with No Gardening knowledge required!

We are calling on everybody to help restore our wildflower habitat, even with a Pot on the Patio or balcony we can help make a difference, so let’s all get planting One Pot at a Time!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a ready seeded Seedmat?

Simply put our Seedmat’s are two layers of thin recycled biodegradable paper with wildflower seeds sandwiched between them.

How is the Seedmat manufactured?

The seeds are premixed together in the mat machine’s hopper which then feeds sprinkler tubes that randomly sprinkle the seeds onto the lower paper level which is in turn then sandwiched by the top paper layer to create our finished mat with over 1,000 seeds per m2.

Our Seedmat’s are manufactured with 100% recycled and biodegradable papers.

All of our packaging is fully biodegradable and made from recycled material.

Why use a Seedmat?

Our Biodegradable Seedmat is the simplest way of transporting flower seeds (some of which are very tiny) to your Pot, Planter Garden or allotment ready for planting and germination to begin.

The seeds are embedded within the mat making it easy for them to be planted in the ground at the same depth to ensure faster germination.

Rain will not wash the seeds away, ground bugs and animals will not eat move the seeds away, birds can not pluck them as they are covered from view.

Our Seedmat allows you to easily cut and fit the mats to your desired pot or container.

Our Seeds

Our wildflower seeds are UK source, 100% pesticide and insecticide free

When should I plant my Seedmat?

You can plant your seedmat at anytime, however from spring after the last frost to autumn end is the optimum time, some perennials benefit from late autumn sowing.

How soon will I see plants sprouting?

You should see sprouting shoots within two to four weeks if laid during the optimum time of year for the seeds.

The seeds will begin to germinate if it is not too cold and they have been suitably watered. It can sometime take a while for your seeds to begin sprouting through the soil although a lot may be happening just below the surface.
