Butterflies are in serious decline. We have lost many of our native butterflies mainly through loss of habitat and intensive farming. Planting wildflowers make a big difference to our butterflies.

ButterflyMat contains annual, biennial and perennial species of wild flowers that are a great source of nectar for butterflies, including:

  • Betony
  • Corn Chamomile
  • Corn Cockle
  • Corn Flower
  • Corn Marigold
  • Corn Poppy
  • Dyers Chamomile
  • Fleabane
  • Hawkweed
  • Knapweeds
  • Lady’s Bedstraw
  • Ragged Robin
  • Red Campion
  • Yarrow

ButterflyMat 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?

ButterflyMat 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, ButterflyMat will suppress weeds and encourage germination of flower seeds in the mat.
