Large Happy Christmas (Pack of 3)
Set of three large “Happy Christmas” wildflower seed boxes – a colourful stocking filler or Christmas party favour.
The Happy Christmas wildflower seed mix will attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators, helping to support garden biodiversity and ecosystems.
Each box contains 15 seed balls, each with approximately 30 wildlife-friendly wildflower seeds (see below for plant details). These make for lovely Christmas gifts, gardening gifts or eco friendly stocking fillers, and will work well in window boxes, balcony pots, garden beds and wildlife gardens. It’s time to rewild!
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 wildflower seeds for wildlife from a mix of Common Toadflax, Cornflower, Cowslip, Meadow Cranesbill, Musk mallow, Oxeye Daisy and Red Campion, plus a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn Marigold, and Night-flowering Catchfly. Each box includes instructions explaining what the balls are and how they work.
They’re incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil/compost (no digging or expertise required!) and nature will do the rest.
Please note that this listing includes three boxes (Green, Pink & Purple). Each box is 8.2cm x 5.1cm x 1.5cm.
One large box of wildflower seed bombs will cover 2-4 medium sized pots, or use three boxes to cover 1 square metre in a garden bed (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn. See our FAQ page for more details on how to get the best from your seed balls.

Silenus the merry god of the woodlands in Greek mythology, gave his name to Silene dioica. The second part of its scientific name, dioica, means 'two houses', and refers to the fact that each Red Campion plant has flowers of one sex only, so that two plants are needed to make seeds.
