Meadow Buttercup (50)

A bag bursting with Buttercup seed balls. When it comes to attracting pollinators, buttercups bring back childhood memories of popping a reflective flower under a pals chin to see if they like butter. Their pretty yellow petals sparkle across a wildflower lawn in the sun – their bowl-like shape also create a wonderfully warm platform for bees and other pollinators to heat up!

Each bag of Buttercup contains 50 seed balls, enough to cover 2.5 metre square in a garden bed or 7-12 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

What are Seedballs? How do they work?

What is a Seedball?

A ball made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.

Why use Seedballs?

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 use Seedballs?

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!

What area will my Seedballs 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).
