A super wildflower gift tin for your Mum 🙂 This limited edition design is based on our Plantlife Mix – five native wildflowers that are most likely to thrive in the nutrient rich soils commonly found in our gardens. Proceeds from the sale of every tin go directly to supporting Plantlife’s new nature reserve – Greena Moor in Cornwall.
Each ball contains approximately 30 seeds per ball from a mix of Meadow buttercup, Oxeye daisy, Red clover, Self heal and Yarrow. Each tin has 20 seed balls, enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.
What are Seedballs? How do they work?
A ball made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.
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!
There are 20 balls in each tin, and around 30 seeds per ball.
Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate!
We would usually advise 20 seed balls per square metre, or 3-5 seed balls for a 35cm container.
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).
