These beautifully illustrated seed boxes make a great gift and are perfect for anyone who loves their garden wildlife. They are much more sustainable option to buying bagged bird feed and the careful selection of plants will boost the food supply for a wide range of garden visitors. The balls are made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder to prevent the seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. Plus they’re really easy to use, no digging and no expert knowledge needed!
Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate! It is usually advised to use 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 and they only ever use peat-free compost.
Each box is made from 100% recycled card and contains 6 seed balls, plus a little card insert to explain what the balls are and how to use them. Simply scatter on top of soil or compost and nature will do the rest! One box will cover 1-2 pots. Use 6 boxes per square metre in a garden. Best scattered in Spring or Autumn. Set contains:
