We're so proud to be supporting Aberdeenshire bat rescue the Bat Bothy as our 2021 Scottish Wildlife cause 😊. We've created this very special, bat-saving seed mix just for them!

 

*100%* of the profits from these sets will go to the Bat Bothy - to fund a flight cage for rescued baby bats learning to fly ❤

 

This set contains the following items:

 

  • Packet of bat-friendly wildflower seeds, with full sowing instructions
  • A5 Bat Bothy postcard, with fab facts about bats
  • Large eco-friendly Bat Bothy sticker
  • Manila brown envelope
  • Free UK shipping included

 

Your bat-friendly wildflower seeds

 

All the bat species in the UK are insectivores (insect-eaters) - and they feed mostly at night.

 

That means you can help bats by sowing wildflower seeds that attract lots of insects - and night-scented wildflowers are particularly valuable!

 

We've created this wildflower mix specifically to support bats (and it's brilliant for daytime pollinating insects, too).

 

Full species list: Evening primrose, night-flowering catchfly, foxglove, borage, corncockle, corn chamomile, field poppy, long-headed poppy, wild blue cornflower, common forget-me-not, corn marigold, scented mayweed.

 

This mix is best sown August-October, to flower the following spring. That's because some of the species - notably evening primrose - need a period of cold to help them germinate.

Just use the 'choose your packet size' dropdown above to select one of the following two options:

 

  • Regular packet (covers c. 1 square metre of bare soil)
  • Bumper bat-happy packet (covers c. 5 square metres of bare soil - for example, a border area that is five metres long and one metre wide).

 

Your postcard and sticker

 

Every packet of our bat-friendly wildflower seed mix comes with a large and very cute Bat Bothy postcard, complete with lots of interesting facts about bats. The perfect wee learning tool to get children (or adults!) interested in bats everywhere.

 

You'll also get a big eco-friendly Bat Bothy sticker. Why not show your support by sticking it on your favourite journal?

    Our postcards

    All the postcards are extra-large, A5 size - that's 21cm x 14.8cm.

    They're printed on uncoated, bright white 380gsm card. That means they're nice and sturdy, and perfect for writing on with any sort of pen.

    Our seeds

    We source all our seeds from a small network of trusted Scottish / UK suppliers.

    We use seed-proof, hand-filled glassine paper seed packets for all our seeds. Glassine paper is 100% plastic-free, fully recyclable and biodegradable. This approach means we can also avoid the foil-sealed sachets many seed companies use, which are sadly not able to be recycled.

    The clear cello bags we use to protect your items are also plant-based and 100% biodegradable.
