Buzzbox is a product concept designed specifically for tenement flats in Edinburgh and Glasgow. The mission? To increase the amount of pollinators in our cities. By increasing the biodiversity of our streets we can provide valuable food resources to help them thrive. Each kit contains a specially designed window box with fixtures to ensure it can be safely used in tenement flats without damage. Also included is a recycled plastic watering can and the perfect amount of compost to get started.

Instead of your traditional seed packets, Buzzbox contains a plantable careguide. The guide is printed in biodegradable plant based inks on seed paper, seeds are added to the paper during the production process, which when planted will grow successfully . The whole careguide can be planted or just the specified sections, allowing the user to keep a hard copy of the care instructions or plant additional spaces.
