Bat Garden Seed Bombs have the perfect collection of wildflowers to attract night time pollinators like moths to your yard that will provide food for bats. Wrapped in a protective coating of clay and compost, these seed bombs are a great way to help turn your yard in to bat Habitat.
I have selected seeds for this mix that are attractive to moths such as evening primrose, a night blooming flower primary pollinated by moths it is also the larval host species of some moth species. This mix also includes wildflowers that are aromatic at night and popular nectar sources like purple cone-flower and Black-eyed Susan, the moths they attract provide food for bats.
Bats are a vital part of our environment, most US bats are insect eaters consuming huge numbers of insect pests such as mosquitoes, and agricultural pest like moths and beetles. Bats need help, habitat loss and the White Nose Syndrome has drastically reduced their population.
Simply toss these "Bat Garden Bombs" into a prepared flowerbed, an existing wildflower meadow or even a vacant lot in your neighborhood. The clay protects the seeds from birds and other animals that might eat them, while the compost gives the seeds a little boost for germination.
Best time to sow is October - March, some wildflowers take up to 2 years to germinate or bloom. Most seeds are perennials.
