Now I am planting for the bees!22/02/2019, By DawnCan't believe all the flowers are edible for us too, amazing!22/02/2019, By JuliaI am so glad that I don't need to buy packs of 100's of seeds that mostly go to waste! Also, Planting the 'paper' with singular seed you don't have a bunch growing on top of each other depleting nutrients.24/01/2019, By zahraThe seeds are already sprouting, instructions are So easy (tells you when to plant how to plant etc). i like that there are just a few seeds. makes it practical and easy for window boxes / small balconies.16/01/2019, By Minette(Full disclosure, I haven't planted mine yet so can't comment on the seed quality)
I was expecting a bigger box.
The word "reel" in the name ... I was expecting reels and reels of seeds
But look again at the price to set a realistic expectation for yourself! There are two peas, and two "packs" of the borage and poppy
So you'll get 6 plants in total.
Lovely gift idea, and I have received a similar pack as a corporate gift before and it germinated really well02/01/2019, By BernadetteI love this! One way to help our little bees!30/04/2018, By DebbieThis is such a nice idea and the information leaflet is very helpful.
We planted our bee food and are waiting expectantly03/03/2018, By Jeanne JSo happy to see Reel Gardening seeds on Faithful to Nature, absolutely brilliant concept and fun to use. They make wonderful gifts, especially for children and for people who have only a small space to grow their own herbs or veg.09/02/2018, By Susie-JHBI absolutely love this product! The bees are endangered and really struggle to find food to sustain their hives in the colder months. This simple, inexpensive product is such an easy way for me and my family to make a small contribution to helping the bees. Its such a great idea!
