A flower that is synonymous with Spring! Cowslip seed balls do well dotted in the lawn, in flower beds and even in those tricky shady spots in the garden. Cowslips are an early source of nectar for bees, beetles and butterflies such as the brimstone.
Each bag of Cowslip 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 late summer or autumn.

The origin of the name cowslip is unclear, but it may derive from the fact that it grows in meadows well manured by cow dung or cow slips.
