Made by Seedball
What is a Seedball?
A seedball is made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.
Seeds - a mix of seeds for butterfly-friendly flowers
Clay - holds the ball together and provides protection from birds and insects
Peat-free compost - provides the nutrition
Chili powder - deters slugs and snails from eating the young shoots
How it works
All of the seeds are encased in a ball which is made with clay, peat-free compost and chili powder. This means they're essentially already 'planted'.
All you need to do is scatter on top of compost or soil (avoid scattering on grass), give them water and sunlight and the seeds will start to germinate.
This process can take 4-6 weeks and best happens in spring or autumn.
As the plants begin to establish, the ball will break down.
A beautiful wildflower garden attracting native wildlife will soon follow!
This mix of native wildflowers are all highly attractive to butterflies.
The seedballs are designed to attract butterflies to our gardens, balconies and window boxes.
Butterfly specific flowers included:
Purple Loosestrife, Forget-me-not, Musk Mallow, Red Campion and Yarrow
There are also the added seeds for pollinator-friendly annuals:
Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn Marigold, and Night-flowering Catchfly.
How to use Seedballs
This tin contains 20 seedballs which is enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots.
1. Throw the balls onto soil or compost in your garden bed or planter/pot
2. Try to leave at least 10cm between each ball
3. It's as easy as that, the seedball has everything it needs to grow and germinate once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right - simple!
When to scatter
Scatter your seedballs in Spring or Autumn.
