It's time to get outside

 

 

 

Autumn has officially arrived, the nights are drawing in, there's a chill in the air - so obviously it's the perfect time to get outside!

This is a great time to get out scattering your Seedballs before the really cold weather sets in. It may seem counter intuitive but in the 'wild' flowers will spread their seeds following pollination in the summer, and the seeds will then remain dormant until conditions improve again.

In the spring the seeds will germinate more quickly after benefitting from exposure to seasonal conditions - such as ground frost. These conditions effectively tell the seeds when to wake up. The seeds will also absorb more water from the soil during this period - although do not scatter seeds on really wet ground or they will rot.

So don't wait until the spring to get scattering, give your Seedballs a head start and throw them far and wide in the autumn air.
