The New Way to plant Wildflowers!
In our new shop in Hereford we're stocking a wonderful range of great gifts, from Jugs and Vases, Chocolate Treats, Vintage Teddy Bears and now Seedballs! - Perfect for the garden love in your life, these stunning tins make a great gift to send with flowers or even on their own!
Each seed ball contains a mini ecosystem: wildflower seeds are mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a smidgen of chili powder, and rolled into a small ball. Each ball is approximately 1cm in diameter, making them super easy to scatter. The dried clay acts as a protective casing from common seed predators (such as ants, mice and birds). When sufficient rain permeates the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the balls. The chili powder continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.
Seed balls will work well in most environments (as long as the seed is well suited to the local climate and soil conditions) and they'll work as well in planting pots as in garden beds. Our special seed ball recipe has been developed specifically with the UK in mind (and rest of north western Europe), and all seed used is naturally distributed within this region.
We've got a great selection of tins on sale in store, from Edible plants like the Herb
and Tea Mixes
, single flowers like the Poppy Tin
and then some very special Mixes for different colours - like the Urban
and Sky Meadow Mixes
and mixes for specific bugs like the Butterfly
and Bee Mixes
Each tin costs £5.50 and contains 20 Seedballs. They'll make a great little treat for sending with some flowers!
