Stock up on Johnson's Lawn Seed’s wildflower mixes for World Bee Day

Company: Johnson's Lawn Seed

World Bee Day takes place on 20th May and aims to highlight the role that bees play in our ecosystem. The UK and Ireland are home to over 270 species of bees which are essential pollinators, responsible for the growth of many fruits, vegetables, and flowers. However, bee populations worldwide are declining due to factors like habitat loss and pesticide use but leading brand Johnsons Lawn Seed has the answer for retailers that will provide our pollinators with a much-needed source of food and nectar.

With the theme of “Bee engaged with youth” recognising how the younger generation is key to addressing the decline of our beneficial insects  Johnsons Celebration Wildflower Tins stands out as a top choice for retailers who want to do their bit to help protect these stripey biodiversity champions?

Filled with a mixture of 15 wildflower seeds, without any additional bulking agents, bees can enjoy Paper Daisy, Pheasant’s Eye, Pot Marigold, Cornflower, Cosmos, Painted Daisy, Dwarf Morning Glory, Chinese Forget-Me-Not, California Poppy, Fineflower, Farewell to Spring, Baby’s Breath, Candy Tuft, Love-in-as- Mist and Corn Poppy.

Celebration tins of wildflower seed contain enough to cover an area of up to 15m2, which makes them a great value purchase, keeping the children entertained over half term. A quick win for both garden centres and consumers as in just eight weeks, a garden will come to life with buzzing bees and fluttering butterflies with minimal effort.

Johnsons Country Meadow Wildflower Mix has been developed specifically for retailers to sell to consumers to attract pollinators, as well as help those who want to seed their lawns.

The flowers in the lawn mix, such as Birdsfoot Trefoil, Common Vetch, Meadow Buttercup, Oxeye Daisy, and others, provide different colours, textures and heights, which can create an attractive and dynamic meadow. Additionally, these wildflowers are known for their adaptability to various soil types and climates, making the mix a good choice for a wide range of gardens and lawns, creating a thriving ecosystem that supports pollinators throughout the growing season.

Guy Jenkins, Consumer Manager at  Johnsons Lawn Seed said: “This World Bee Day, retailers should not miss out and stocking up on Johnson's Wildflower seed mixes. Both  Celebration and Country Meadow mix can help shoppers create a haven for bees and other pollinators while adding beauty and biodiversity to an outdoor space. Not only will the wildflower ranges create a positive impact in-store but also on World Bee Day and beyond.”

Bursting with colour and diversity, the Celebration mix is a great impulse buy at an accessible price point of £9.99, providing the most novice of gardeners to do their bit to help the bees.  Country Meadow Mix is available for £14.99.
