Silver Creek Nursery Beneficial Insect Seed Mix - 150g

Silver Creek Nursery Beneficial Insect Seed Mix - 150g

Enjoy our GMO-free, untreated, open-pollinated, custom blend of flowering plant and herb seeds, designed to help attract all kinds of beneficial insects to your garden! This blend will attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and Syrphid flies along with helpful predatory insects that will naturally take care of the pests in your garden, reducing the need for harmful insecticides and improving biodiversity. Such allies include: lacewings, ladybugs, parasitoid wasps*, Tachinid flies, praying mantises, minute pirate bugs, and soldier beetles. 

Along with attracting beneficial bugs, we designed this pack to be appealing to the eye and palate. With a blend of wildflowers and herbs, you can expect a showy array of different blooms along with herbs that can be used to liven things up in the kitchen! We also wanted to mimic the harmony in nature by including plants that work well together. Some of the species included here are fast-growing broad-leaved plants that will help to support the slower growing plants that will come up beneath them.

Please see HERE for the list of plants included in the mix, application rates, and planting instructions!

The contents of this package can cover 500-1000sq.ft depending on weed pressure. 

*For anyone scared of wasps, these are very very tiny and cannot hurt you but will prey on critters like aphids and caterpillars that want to eat your garden!

Shipping vs. Pick Up

CLICK HERE to see how shipping compares to pick up.

Shipping: Every year we ship thousands of trees across Canada (except BC due to CFIA regulations). We carefully bag roots in damp sawdust, then box them and send them out via courrier. CLICK HERE to see our shipping policy.

Pick-up: We also have thousands of trees picked up from our nursery each year. The pick-up options is free, though you must wait until you have been emailed a confirmation that your order is ready to pick up, which will have further information such as hours, locations, etc. We really appreciate if you can make an appointment to pick up, then we can be as organized as possible during our busy season.
