Lawn Flowers (100 Balls)

New for Spring 2024! A large grab bag of 100 seed balls – each bag will cover cover 5 square metres and is ideal for creating larger wildflower patches.

Created in collaboration with The Wildlife Trusts to encourage everyone to add pollinator friendly plants into their lawns! The balls can be scattered onto bare soil with or without grass seed, or grown amongst existing lawns by clearing patches for the balls. You can also scatter onto grass that has been mowed very short and given a strong rake to break up the grass.

Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Buttercup, Dandelion, White Clover, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Red Clover, Cowslip, Self Heal and Yellow Rattle – low growing wildflowers which can often be spotted within grassy areas or grazed fields.

Seedball donates £1 to The Wildlife Trusts for every bag sold.

Seedball grab bags are made from paper, they’re totally plastic free and ideal for composting at home. As well as for use in your own garden, they make for lovely gardening gifts, bee and butterfly gifts, eco friendly gifts or birthday gifts. They will work well in all growing spaces – window boxes, balcony pots, garden beds and wildlife gardens. It’s time to rewild!

RHS plants for pollinators, No chemicals, pesticides or neonics, made in the UK, peat free, easy to use gardening seed balls

The Wildlife Trusts

A grassroots movement that believes we need nature and it needs us. More than 900,000 members and 39,000 volunteers working together with their Wildlife Trust to make their local area wilder and make nature part of life, for everyone. Every Wildlife Trust is an independent charity.

What's included in this mix?

Each bag contains 100 seed balls. They’re really easy to use, simply scatter on top of soil in a garden bed or planter. One bag of seed bombs will cover 5 square metres in a garden bed or 15-25 medium sized pots (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.

The mix includes the following super wildlife-friendly flowers:

Meadow Buttercup (Ranunculus acris)

The tallest and most elegant of our native buttercups, this plant sometimes reaches a height of 90cm. This native winter-green perennial is found on most grazed or cut grasslands throughout Britain, but has a preference for moist soils.
Height: 5-90cm
Scatter: Autumn or Spring
Flowers: April to October

Common Daisy (Bellis Perennis)

One of most familiar flowers of all!
Height: Up to 10cm
Flowers: Can be seen in flower through spring and summer

Common Dandelion - Photo by Ryan Hodnett

Common Dandelion (Taraxacum Officinale)

A common perennial that is especially great for butterflies.
Height: 4-45cm
Flowers: Can be seen in flower through spring and summer

White Clover (Trifolium repens)

Perennial.
Height: 10-30cm
Scatter: Best sown in good growing conditions in spring or summer before the end of August.
Flowers: April to November
Experts claim that there are about 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover.

Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)

A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.
Height: 15-25cm
Flowers: May to October
Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into your summer baskets and patio pots?

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!

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 Selfheal, sometimes written as Self-heal, refers to the plant having been used as a treatment for wounds and bruises until recent times.

Yellow Rattle - photo by Peter O'Connor

Yellow Rattle (Rhinanthus Minor)

A quick growing grassland annual with yellow flowers and two purple 'teeth'.
Height: 45cm
Flowers: May to September

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).
