What's inside this mix?

Each box of Hero Lawn contains 20 seed balls with a mix of beautiful native wildflowers for garden lawns – Dandelion, Buttercup, Common Daisy, Cowslip, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Red Clover, White Clover, Self Heal, Yellow Rattle. 

If you’re adding to an existing lawn: Mow your lawn short and rake well. Scatter the seed balls (leaving at least 10cm between each ball) and avoid mowing again for at least 6-8 weeks to allow the plants to establish. Water well on dry days if possible. These short growing wildflowers co-exist amongst the grass, while being hardy to a degree of trampling. Best scattered between Spring and Autumn, allow 12 months for some plants to flower.

One box 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). See our FAQ page for more details on how to get the best from your seed balls.

Cowslip (Primula veris)

Perennial.
Height: 20-30cm
Scatter: Late summer or autumn
Flowers: April and May
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.

Self Heal (Prunella vulgaris)

Perennial.
Height: 10-50cm
Flowers: June to September
The common name Self heal, sometimes written as Self-heal, refers to the plant having been used as a treatment for wounds and bruises until recent times.

Flowers: May to September

White Clover (Trifolium repens)

Perennial.
Height: 10-30cm
Scatter: Best sown in good growing conditions in spring or summer before the end of August.

Experts claim that there are about 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover.

Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)

Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
Height: 10-45cm

The trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!

Flowers: May to October
Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into your summer baskets and patio pots?

Scatter: Autumn or Spring
Flowers: April to October

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.
