The AP4 Bat Attractor Pack is a special mix of wildflower seeds for night-scented plants that are attracted to the flowers and in turn are food for bats
Bats will feed over areas where they can hunt moths, midges, beetles, spiders and other insects. Our specially selected plant species are all attractive to these insects and can draw in bats to feed.
The AP4 Attractor pack includes a fascinating Bat Guide which gives information on their life cycle, habitats and conservation and species identification.
When to Sow
Sow March to May or September to October and sow outdoors directly onto soil where they are to flower once the soil has warmed. For best results choose a poor, infertile soil in full sun and do not add fertiliser.
Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine texture. Sprinkle seed thinly over the surface and rake lightly to ensure the seed is covered. Germination takes 14 - 21 days.
As seedlings germinate, keep well watered and weed free. Flowers spring to autumn.
In the autumn after the seed has been shed, clean up the growing area and water well. Perennials and biennialplants will continue to grow and flower the following year. Autumn sown seed will flower the following summer.
The AP4 Attractor Pack is a specially selected mix of night-scented wildflowers to attract insects for bats and, subject to the final packaging is made from the following: Bladder Campion, Red Campion, Night Catch-Fly, Corn Chamomile, Cornflower, Cowslip, Evening Primrose, Field Poppy, Fleabane, Foxglove, Great Mullein, Corn Marigold, Soapwort, Vipers Bugloss, Yarrow.
