  • Basil, Chives, Sweet Marjoram, Dill, Parsley
  • 20 balls per tin, 100 seeds per ball.
  • Easy to use, simply scatter on top of soil in a garden bed or planter.

Basil (Ocimum basilicum).
Aromatic annual or biennial with bright green, elliptic leaves and small, tubular white or pink-tinged flowers
Geeklet: The Latin word basileus means king: in ancient times these leaves were used to create perfumes for monarchs.

Chives (Allium schoenoprasum).
Allium are bulbous herbaceous perennials with a strong onion or garlic scent, linear, strap-shaped or cylindrical basal leaves and star-shaped or bell-shaped flowers in an umbel on a leafless stem
Geeklet: Chives have a long history of use in the kitchen, with some recipes from China going back at least 5,000 years

Sweet Marjoram (Origanum marjorana).
Leaves and flowering sprigs are popular in Greek and Italian meat dishes, soups, stuffings, tomato sauces and pasta, where they are best used towards the end of the cooking process.
Geeklet: It was once believed that marjoram helped to nurture love.

Dill (Anethum graveolens).
Its leaves are invaluable for cooking, its flowers for decorating salads and arranging, and its seeds for salads, baking and tagines
Geeklet: Dill has been used for thousands of years, and in England in the 5th to 11th centuries it was used to treat headaches, stomach illness, boils and nausea, and other sickness.

Parsley (Petroselinum crispum). 
Aromatic biennials with broad, pinnate to 3-pinnate leaves and compound umbels of small white or pale green flowers
Geeklet: There was an ancient belief that plucking a sprig of parsley while saying one’s enemy’s name would bring about the death of said enemy

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).
