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

Oxeye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)
perennial 
Height: 30-90cm
Flowers: May - Sept
Geeklet: In Austria and Germany it was hung inside the house as it was believed it would repel lightening.

Self Heal (Prunella vulgaris).
perennial
Height: 10-50cm
Flowers: June to Sept.
Geeklet: The common name Selfheal, sometimes written as Self-heal, refers to the plant having been used as a treatment for wounds and bruises until recent times.

Meadow buttercup (Ranunculus acris): 
The tallest of our native buttercups, meadow buttercup has distinctive yellow petals.
Height: 5-100cm.
Flowers: April to October.

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!

Proceeds from each tin go directly to Plantlife's new wildflower reserve Greena Moor.

Plantlife is an incredible British conservation charity working to save threatened wild flowers, plants and fungi which are the life support of all our wildlife. They own nearly 4,500 acres of nature reserve across England, Scotland and Wales where you can find over 80% of the UK’s wildflowers and an astonishing 3,439 different wildlife species. 

Their reserves range from wonderful flower-rich meadows, to vast peat bogs in Scotland (which is super important butterfly habitat), and they've recently extended their Greena Moor nature reserve in Cornwall which is home to a particular combination of wild plants, known as ‘culm grassland’, of which 92% has been lost in the past 100 years. Their project will help six of our most threatened plant species, including lesser butterfly orchid, the marsh fritillary butterfly and much more.

In collaborating with Plantlife we're hoping that the Seedball family can help out a bit too, with a donation for every Plantlife Mix tin sold going directly to Greena Moor. 

Please do visit their website, where you can find out more about their extraordinary work and how we can all help support this. There's also information about their 24 (!) reserves, all of which can be visited by the public!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
