  • This colourful combination of annuals and perennials was developed in collaboration with River of Flowers - a fantastic organisation working to create and connect urban meadows across the globe. 
  • Common toadflax, cornflower, cowslip, meadow cranesbill, musk mallow, oxeye daisy and red campion.
  • 20 balls per tin, 30 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.

Common toadflax (Linaria vulgaris)
Perennial.
Height: 10-150cm
Flowers: June to October
Geeklet: There is an old belief that when you walk around the flower three times it will remove any spells that have been cast on you!

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 a garnish.

Cowslip (Primula veris)
Perennial.
Height: 20-30cm
Flowers: April to May
Geeklet: The origin of the name cowslip is unclear, but it may derive from the fact that it grows in meadows well manured by cow dung or cow slips.

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.

Musk mallow (Malva moschata
A tall perennial with large rose pink petals.
Height: 40-70cm
Flowers: June to August
Geeklet: The plant is cultivated for its seeds, which are used in perfumes. The plant also yields a fibre that can be used for clarifying sugar.

Oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)
Perennial.
Height: 30-90cm
Flowers: May to September
Geeklet: In Austria and Germany oxeye daisies were hung inside the house as it was believed they would repel lightning.

Red campion (Silene dioica)
A perennial with rose pink petals.
Height: 20-60cm
Flowers: March to November
Geeklet: Silenus, the merry god of the woodlands in Greek mythology, gave his name to Silene dioica. The second part of its scientific name, 'dioica', means 'two houses' and refers to the fact that each Red campion plant has flowers of one sex only, so that two plants are needed to make seeds.

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).
