The Bee Garden Blend Wildflower Seeds are specially blended by our Certified Bee Master for use in managed landscapes such as disused laneways; verges; or along the edges of cultivated areas in residential or agricultural properties. Bees and flowering plants evolved together millions of years ago. We could not have one without the other. Although bees face many challenges in this age of global weather change; at West Coast Seeds we believe that the simple act of sowing the seeds of plants that bees and other pollinators love to forage on is a critically important step in helping to ensure they; the whole planet; and we have a future.
Recommended rate of application: 115g per 1,000 square feet.

Direct sow early March to the end of May. Wildflower seeds can also be sown in the autumn, but you may lose a certain percentage of seeds to water, birds, and animals. To make the most of the annual species, direct sow in March.
Pollinator friendly gardening practices are so easy to perform, important for the environment, and wonderful to enjoy! Pollinators like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are essential for the survival of plants and animals. They help plants reproduce by transferring pollen from one flower to another. This process is crucial for the growth of fruits and vegetables. Pollinators also play a vital role in maintaining biodiversity and the health of ecosystems.
Gardeners can take several steps to protect pollinators. One way is to plant native flowers that bloom at different times of the year. This provides a continuous source of food for pollinators. Gardeners can also avoid using pesticides and herbicides, which can be harmful to pollinators.

Another way to protect pollinators is to provide them with nesting sites. Many pollinators, such as bees, lay their eggs in tunnels in decaying wood or sandy soil. Gardeners can create nesting sites by leaving tree snags on their property or by building or buying native bee houses. Providing water sources for pollinators is also important. A shallow dish of water on a deck or window sill can help thirsty pollinators stay hydrated.
Pollinators are absolutely essential for the health of our planet! Gardeners like yourself can play an important role in protecting pollinators by planting native flowers, avoiding pesticides, providing nesting sites and water sources, and advocating for policies that protect pollinators. A visit to Shelmerdine will inspire you to engage in these and other eco-friendly initiatives! By taking these steps, gardeners can help ensure that pollinators continue to thrive and contribute to the health of our ecosystems.
