2016 total sets new record
Thanks to the stirling efforts of volunteers at Tŷ Hyll, led by Margaret Thomas, sales of Seeds for Bees and Plants for Pollinators raised a fantastic £2,883 towards the upkeep of this special house and gardens.
Seeds from native wildflowers and cultivated varieties specially chosen to attract honeybees and other pollinators are hand-collected and packed by our Tŷ Hyll volunteers. Varieties include native species such as foxgloves, corncockle, meadowsweet, devilsbit scabious and many more.
Sales of Seeds for Bees raised a fantastic £1,468 in 2016.
The ideal environmentally friendly gift
These are an ideal environmentally friendly product both in the way they are produced and packaged and also in that they support our local wildlife.
They also make an ideal gift to slip into a greetings card, for example the beautiful new greetings card designed by Jane Hanford that are now on sale at Ty Hyll.
Seeds for Bees can be purchased on our website for only £1 per packet and at Tŷ Hyll the Ugly House.
Bee-friendly plants for sale
Plants are also grown from seed, donated, divided and potted up for sale and these raised £1,415 in 2016! If you love gardening and aren’t lucky enough to have your own plot to tend, or can spend a little time away from your own, why not come and help at the Tŷ Hyll wildlife gardening days every Monday?
