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.
Meadow Buttercup (Ranunculus acris)
The tallest and most elegant of our native buttercups, this plant sometimes reaches a height of 90cm. This native winter-green perennial is found on most grazed or cut grasslands throughout Britain, but has a preference for moist soils.
Scatter: Autumn or Spring
