Using the pollinator pack you can encourage more pollinators into your garden, and help identify the insects you see. It is not just bees that pollinate flowers. Butterflies, beetles and many other insects also play an important role, carrying pollen from one flower to another. Grow a mix of flowers with different flowering times in your garden to provide food for as long as possible. Just throw your beebombs onto cleared ground in your garden, making sure there is enough sun and rain. The soil will help them germinate and the clay will protect and spread out the seeds. Beebombs are best scattered in spring or autumn. While beebombs are great in heavily modified places like gardens, it’s best not to use them in wilder places.
