A collection of low lying wildflowers to create a pretty tapestry effect on a lawn, that’s low maintenance and supports biodiversity.
Each box contains 20 seed balls, each with approximately 30 wildlife-friendly wildflower seeds (see below for plant details). These make for lovely gardening or eco friendly gifts.
It’s time to rewild!
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.
