Introducing Seedballs - a simpler way to grow from seed! Give someone the gift of growing wildflowers for their borders, pots or windowboxes. A lovely idea for an eco friendly stocking filler.
This lovely collection of mostly purple, pink and blue flowers is designed to attract butterflies. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 wildflower seeds for butterflies from a mix of Purple Loosestrife, Forget-me-not, Musk mallow, Red campion and Yarrow, plus a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.
Each tin contains 20 seed balls which will cover 1 square metre in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.
How Seedballs work
No need to dig! As the wildflower seeds are encased in clay and peat-free compost, they are essentially already “planted”. Simply scatter onto bare soil or compost (avoid scattering on grass) on a garden bed or in a pot, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. The outer clay helps to prevent birds and insects from eating the seeds, keeping the seeds nicely protected and ensuring your wildflower garden has every chance of growing success.
With rain (or watering) and enough sun and warmth, the wildflower seeds inside the ball will start to germinate and little sprouts will begin to appear from the ball. This process can take 4-6 weeks from scattering. Chilli powder has been added to the Seedball recipe to help deter slugs and snails from eating the young shoots.
Bee, Hedgehog and Bird Mix Seedball tins are also available on our website.
