A ready seeded biodegradable seed mat that contains mixed flower seeds carefully selected to provide feed and nesting material for birds.

Birds are in serious decline. We have lost many of our wild birds mainly through loss of habitat, development and intensive farming. Planting wild flowers and grasses makes a big difference to birds by providing feed and nesting materials.

BirdMat contains annual, biennial and perennial species of wild flowers and grasses that are a great source of seeds and nesting materials including:

  • Chrysanthemum
  • Common Knapweed
  • Corn Marigold
  • Greater Knapweed
  • Linseed
  • Phacelia
  • Purple Coneflower
  • Quinoa
  • Salad Burnet
  • Sorrel
  • Teasel
  • White Millet

BirdMat consists of a 200cm x 50cm weed-control seed-mat that contains a mixture of flowers seeds. Cut to size and store in a cool dry place.

What’s it made of?

BirdMat is made up of two layers of tissue paper with flower seeds between them. When laid onto prepared soil and covered with a thin layer of sand, clean soil or compost, BirdMat will suppress weeds and encourage germination of flower seeds in the mat.

Sow: March to mid-August.
