Created by conservation scientists and winner of the 'Great British Growing Awards 2019', for 'Best Wildlife Gardening Product', Seedball offers a new twist on an ancient technique for increasing seed germination rates - helping to fill our gardens, balconies and window boxes with native wildflowers, bees and butterflies.  

Native wildflowers are naturally slow to germinate, and as such, loosely scattered seed can often be eaten by ants, birds and mice. Seedball solves this problem by encasing the seed in a protective ball of clay, compost and chilli.  The barrier of dried outer clay means that the seed is inaccessible to predators, and once sufficient water permeates the clay, the seed inside will begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the ball. The chilli powder continues to deter slugs and snails while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout. 

Seed balls are incredibly easy to use - simply scatter on top of soil or compost (no digging or  expertise required!) and nature will do the rest.

This seedball mix contains the seeds of native bee-friendly wildflowers that are recommended by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as being rich in easily accessible pollen and nectar.   Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram plus a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.  

Each tin of Bee Mix contains 20 seed balls, enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots. Seed balls are best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

Available all year round.
