Blackwater Honey is fully committed to improving and diversifying habitats for all pollinator species, across Ireland in association with the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan.
On our farm in Cork, we have planted many bee friendly trees, to help offset our carbon emissions. We encourage the planting of wildflowers, which provides a crucial source of food for all pollinator species. We regularly giveaway free wildflower seed mixtures on social media allowing our followers to plant them in their gardens. Every single jar of honey purchased from us will qualify for 1 x free packet of wildflower seeds.
The wildflower seed mixture may include some of the following species: Bluebell, Burdock, Dog Violet, Cowslip, Devils Bit, Scabious, Foxglove, Hedge Garlic Mustard, Lesser Knapweed, Meadowsweet, Ramson, Red Campion, Ribwort Plantain, Sorrel, Upright Hedge Parsley, Wild Angelica, Wood Avens, Hemp Agrimony, Hoary Plantain, Primrose, Sweet Violet, Wood Sage, species which may be added: Pokeweed, Cow-Parsley, Wood Sanicle, Poppy.
