100gr pack of Plants for bees seeds, 10 varieties

Since the beginning of intensive agriculture and industrialization (approximately since 1960) there has been a steady decline in honey bee colonies. Some of these species are found only in isolated places. A colony of bees requires only about 50 kilos food nectar and approx. 20 kilos of pollen a year.

Possible reasons for this decline are the following:

• Significant decrease in biodiversity of bee pasture plants

• Steady increase in the use of pesticides

• The constant elimination of so-called "weeds" before flowering (many are important bee pasture).

• The disappearance of wild meadows, with short mowed lawn without flowers.

• Disappearance of many moors (land consolidation) due to economic exploitation

• The early elimination of waste wood (important for wild bees)

• Monoculture

• Genetically modified plants that can absorb and withstand poison and poison pollen and nectar for bees.

In addition living conditions can be improved through the following measures:

• Avoid pesticides

• Recycle of old wood in wood piles, ' bee hotels "

• Avoid anything that is genetically modified

• Use the margins of fields, roads and highways as 'arable' areas for wild plants.

• Different strategies against so-called "weeds"

• Creation of new biotopes

We can also actively increase the number, quality and diversification of plants for bees.

We have an initial selection of plants that we have collected for ruderal areas (also suitable for 'seed bombs'), we would like to introduce. These plants generally require no or little attention.
