  • 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.

Forget me not (Myosotis arvensis).
Short annual with blue-grey flowers occasionally interspersed with pink flowers. 
Height: 10 - 40cm.
Flowers: April to October.
Geeklet: Forget me nots have been used in the past for their astringent properties. The name Myosotis is derivation of the Latin and Greek for mouse and ears.

Red campion (Silene dioca).
A perennial with rose pink petals.
Height: 20-60cm.
Flowers: March to November.
Geeklet: Silenus the merry god of the woodlands in Greek mythology, gave his name to Silene dioica. The second part of its scientific name, dioica, means 'two houses', and refers to the fact that each Red Campion plant has flowers of one sex only, so that two plants are needed to make seeds

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium).
A perrenial aromatic herb with white flowers arranged in a many flowered flat umbel head
Height: 8-60cm.
Flowers: June to August.
Geeklet: Yarrow is a common herb that has been highly regarded for its medicinal properties in Britain since Anglo-Saxon times, it is said that Achilles used this herb to treat the wounds of his soldiers

Purple Loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria).
A tall perennial with a spectacular spike of magenta flowers .
Height: up to 150cm.
Flowers: June to August.
Geeklet: A beautiful ornamental plant well suited to boggy areas.

Musk mallow (Malva moschata). 
Description: A tall perennial withlarge rose pink petals.
Height: 40 - 70cm.
Flowers: June to August.
Geeklet: The plant is cultivated for its seeds, which are used in perfumes. The plant also yields a fibre that can be used for clarifying sugar.

Butterfly 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).

"Well worth the purchase highly recommended."

"I am in love with these wonderful seedballs! They are simply awesome!
I do not have green fingers at all and but you really don't need them for this product!
The seriously are wonderfully easy to use. Just loosen the soil, place on the ground, smooth it over, water and wait!

Perfect, oh and super cute tin too!!"
 
By Mr James R Standing, on 26 September 2016
"I was given a tin of these along with a tin of the Bee Mix from a colleague as a birthday present and can't wait to sow them! The tins are really pretty and have lovely drawings on the back detailing which plants should grow. The tin says they are best scattered in the Spring or Autumn so I'll scatter mine in pots in the garden soon. I'm also going to put some in my allotment. Lovely little product. Great gift."
