UK conservationists say that many British bat species are facing serious trouble, they have less roosting places and the food they eat is in decline. Bats have massive appetites - flying uses lots of energy so they need to eat thousands of insects a night. A tiny Pipistrelle bat alone can eat over 3,000 mosquitoes a night!

  • Our seed balls contain a special mix of wildflower seeds for night-scented plants (evening primrose, night scented stock) and plants with both long and short pollen tubes which attract a great diversity of insects to the flowers in the evening that are in turn food for bats.
  • Our mix contains a range of colours and shapes of flower to maximise the number of insects they will attract.
  • The flowers in our mix are selected to bloom during the period when bats are most active in our gardens

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 knowledge 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.

Conservation: 
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.
