Made by Seedball
A ball made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.
Seeds - a mix of seeds for native wildflowers
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
As the seeds are encased in a ball made with clay, peat-free compost and chili powder, they're essentially already 'planted'.
This means, once they are scattered on top of compost or soil (avoid scattering on grass), with water and sunlight, the seeds will start to germinate.
This process can take approx. 4-6 weeks.
As the plants begin to establish, the ball will break down and become less visible.
A beautiful wildflower garden full of pollinators will follow!
This seedball tin contains a mix of British native wildflowers that are ideal for the shadier areas in gardens and on balconies.
As with all flowers, they will still struggle in total shade!
The flowers included are:
Bellflower, Forget-me-not, Meadow Buttercup, Meadowsweet, Oxeye Daisy, Ragged Robin and Red Campion.
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
2. Make sure to leave at least 10cm between each ball
3. It's as simple as that! The seedballs have everything they need to grow and germinate once the balls become moist and the temperature is right
Scatter your seedballs in Spring or Autumn.
