The mix includes the following super wildlife-friendly flowers:

Primrose (Primula vulgaris)

Flowers and leaves can be used in salads, as a green vegetable, or in tea to treat anxiety, insomnia, and migraines. Roots can be used to make cough syrups and in arthritis and rheumatism treatments.

Season: March to June

Lady's Smock (Cardamine Pratensis)

The leaves taste of mustard or wasabi, and the flowers taste like cress with hints of sweetness and spice. The leaves can be a bit small and fiddly to collect - basal leaves at the bottom of the plant are easier. Leaves and flowers are lovely in salad. A tea made with the leaves of this plant was often used in the past as a Spring tonic or for menstrual problems.

Season: January to December

Shepherd's Purse (Capsella Bursa-Pastoris)

The leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. The flower tips can be eaten as a snack, and the dried flowers and leaves can be used as a tea. Some of the tea can be used on a cotton bud to stop nosebleeds.

Season: March to November

Wild Garlic (Allium ursinum)

The plant can be used raw or cooked. It's best to leave the roots alone, as the leaves are tastier and there are no bulbs. This plant is known to reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and like bulb garlic, it has more medicinal claims than space to print them.

Season: February to June

Borage (Borago officinalis)

Annual.
Height: up to 60cm
Flowers: April to September

Pignut (Conopodium majus)

Pignuts take a few years to grow. They taste a little like a sweet chestnut or hazelnut crossed with a radish. The root must be carefully followed to find the nut at the end. It often bends 90 degrees before the nut and snaps off very easily.

Season: March to June

Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)

Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
Height: 10-45cm
Flowers: May to September
The trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!

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).

See our FAQ page for our full guide to growing wildflowers from Seedball.
