Did you know that bees see colour in a different way to humans? They respond to blue and ultraviolet light. This mix is designed to provide an attractive mix of blue wildflowers to bring the bees in!
  • Cornflower, Forget-me-not, Meadow cranesbill, Self Heal and Wild Clary.
  • 20 balls per tin, 75 seeds per ball.
  • Easy to use, simply scatter on top of soil in a garden bed or planter.
  • Scatter in spring or autumn. Sprouts seen in 4-6 weeks.

Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)
Annual.
Height: 90cm
Flowers: June to August
Geeklet: Cornflowers are edible. They have a cucumber-like taste. Flowers can be consumed in the form of salad and tea, or used as garnish.

Forget-me-not (Myosotis arvensis)
Short annual with blue-grey flowers occasionally interspersed with pink flowers. 
Height: 10-40cm.
Flowers: April to October
Geeklet: Forget-me-nots have been used in the past for their astringent properties. The name Myosotis is derivation of the Latin and Greek for mouse and ears.

Meadow cranesbill (Geranium pratense)
Perennial.
Height: 30-70cm
Flowers: June to September
Geeklet:  The large purple flowers of Meadow cranesbill turn into pointed, bill-like seed pods that give the plant its common name.

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

Wild clary (Salvia verbenaca)
Perennial.
Height: 30-90cm
Flowers: June to September
Geeklet: The name ‘Clary’ comes from ‘clear-eye’, because the seeds were soaked in water to produce a jelly (rather like frogspawn) that could soothe and cleanse the eye.

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).

 The bees love them: ) You do have to be a ... 
By Megan, on Jul 19, 2016 
"I got a selection of different seedballs and the cornflowers in the Sky Meadow mix have definitely been the most successful so far. The bees love them :) You do have to be a little patient when waiting for shoots to appear (and make sure to carefully mark the area you scattered them so you don't accidently weed them out)."
