A selection of wildflower seeds chosen by our favourite contemporary artist Yvonne Coomber. Inspired by the wildflowers growing outside of her studio in Devon, Yvonne has painted a canvas for Seedball called ‘Here Is Where All The Wildflowers Grow’. We’ve taken a section of this painting to create this totally gorgeous design for our Artist’s Meadow tin, with the seed mix being of those flowers from the painting.
The Artist’s Meadow wildflower seed mix will attract all pollinators, helping to support the biodiversity and ecosystem of your garden.
Each tin contains 20 seed balls, each with approximately 30 wildlife-friendly wildflower seeds (see below for plant details). These make for lovely gardening gifts, bee and butterfly gifts, eco friendly gifts or birthday gifts. They will work well in window boxes, balcony pots, garden beds and wildlife gardens.
It’s time to rewild!
To complete our collaboration, for every tin sold we donate 20p to The Wildlife Trusts – a totally inspiring conservation charity working to save our wild places while bringing people closer to nature.
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 wildflower seeds from a mix of Common Poppy, Oxeye Daisy, Musk Mallow, Corn Marigold, Purple Field Scabious, Red Campion and White Cow Parsley.
One tin of seed bombs will cover 1 square metre in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn. See our FAQ page for more details on how to get the best from your seed balls.

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.
