Beetles are important pollinators – pollinating the first flowers at the time of dinosaurs – 140million years ago. Flowers in the Carrot or Umbellifer family (Apiaceae), and those with multiple flower heads, seem to be particularly attractive - making our mix of flowers perfect for pollinating beetles.

  • Our Beetle mix has been designed to attract UK pollinating beetles
  • Our mix contains flowers to attract beetles from Spring to Autumn

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.
