SUPER easy to use
simply scatter on soil and let nature do the rest
STEP 1 choose which wildflowers would you like to grow
Are you looking to attract a particular type of wildlife, grow wildflowers of a specific colour, or looking for wildflowers that are most suitable for shade or busy road verges? We have it covered! See our full range here.
STEP 2 scatter onto bare soil or compost
No need to dig! As the seeds are encased in clay and peat-free compost, they are essentially already "planted". Simply onto bare soil or compost (avoid scattering on grass) on a garden bed or in a pot, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. The outer clay helps to prevent birds and insects from eating the seeds, keeping the seeds nicely protected.
STEP 3 seeds germinate inside the ball and begin to sprout
With rain (or watering) and enough sun and warmth, the seeds inside the ball with begin to germinate and little sprouts will begin to appear from the ball. This process can take 4-6 weeks from scattering. We add chilli powder to our Seedball recipe to help deter slugs and snail from eating the young shoots.
STEP 4 ball breaks down as the plants become established
Slowly the ball will disperse and become less visible, leaving a patch of young plants which will continue to grow and grow!
STEP 5 plants come into flower and are a hub of wildlife activity!
Each wildflower species has a different flowering time and length of time taken to come into flower - some will flower in the first year and others will flower in the following year. Once in flower they will provide important habitat and food for an abundance of garden wildlife.
