  • A mix of five native wildflower species that are great for bees.
  • Foxglove, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Wild Marjoram, Red Clover & Viper's-Bugloss.
  • 20 balls per tin, 30 seeds per ball.
  • Easy to use, simply scatter on top of soil in a garden bed or planter.
  • Scatter in spring or autum. Sprouts seen in 4-6 weeks.

Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea).
A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with pink and purple flowers on spikes.
Height: 60 - 150cm.
Flowers: June to September.
Toxicity
: Poisonous if eaten.
Geeklet: Foxgloves are a really good ‘bridging plant’, as they bloom late May-June, a period when the bulbs have finished and the summer perennials are yet to be at their best!

Red Clover (Trifolium pretense).
Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
Height: 10 - 45cm.
Flowers: May to September.
Geeklet: The Trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds
nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!

Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus).
A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.
Height: 15-25cm.
Flowers: May to October.
Geeklet: Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into
your summer baskets and patio pots??

Viper's Bigloss (Echium vulgare).
A tall biennial (flowering stem grows in the second year) with
incredibly blue flowers emerging from pink buds.
Height: 30 - 90cm.
Flowers: June to September.
Geeklet: If you’re looking to do something a little different with your echium,
why not try growing a low blue hedge with it, or scatter it amongst paving slabs to soften the landscape and add a punch of colour.

Wild Marjoram (Origanum vulgare). 
Aromatic perennial with dark purple buds and pinkish purple flowers.
Height: 30 - 60cm.
Flowers: April to November.
Geeklet: The Wild Marjoram is not only a wildflower, but can also double up as a pretty damn tasty pizza topping, along with your very best sweet tomatoes!

 

Bee Mix now also contains extra bee loving annuals: Cornflower, Chamomile, Corn Marigold & Night-Flowering Catchfly.

What is Seedball? 
A ball made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.

Why use Seedball? 
The ball prevents the seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. Plus they're super easy to use, no digging and no expert knowldge needed!

What's in the tin? 
There are 20 balls in each tin, and around 30 seeds per ball.

How do I grow Seedball? 
Just throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate! 

 

 

 

 

 

What area will my Seedball cover? 
We would usually advise 20 seed balls per square metre, or 3-5 seed balls for a 35cm container.

Consveration: 
All seed is responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers, we only ever use peat-free compost and our steel tins are manufactured in London (with the help of a solar farm on the factory roof).

See our FAQ page for our full guide to growing wildflowers from Seedball.

I love them - so easy to use, 10th July 2016, by Janeh271:
I have bought several tins of these , butterfly mix, meadow mix and herbs. I love them - so easy to use and as a teacher the potential for learning is amazing, environment, pollinators, conservation, looking at the best site to create you nature friendly garden. How the seeds are protected from predators. I started several of these off in my greenhouse - see photo and as a photographer have loved the results.

"very happy with my flowers - as are the bees!"

5So far so good, 2nd Sep 2014, by Exspect:
"Every single seed ball I planted has sprouted, and the seedlings all seem strong and healthy. Followed instructions and the first shoot appeared within a week! Will have to see if they survive the winter and flower in spring. Really happy with it so far."

5Flower Power! 24 Oct 2014, by Gill:
"Absolutely love these, I am not a gardener, but after 18 years of bare soil, decided to give it a go. So easy to sow, and looked beautiful when they flowered, the bees loved them! And my soil is mainly clay, so I was amazed that anything at all would grow! Highly recommend."
