Plantlife Mix

The ideal mix for garden flower beds! Curated by wildflower conservation organisation Plantlife, this mix includes five native wildflowers that are most likely to thrive in the nutrient rich soils commonly found in our gardens. Proceeds from the sale of every tin go directly to supporting Plantlife’s nature reserve Greena Moor in Cornwall which is home to rare wildflowers, butterflies and birds including the Marsh Fritillary butterfly, Reed Buntings and Meadow Pipits. Pop across to our Nature Blog for more information on our work with Plantlife.

Each tin has 20 seed balls and each ball contains approximately 30 seeds per ball from a mix of Meadow buttercup, Oxeye daisy, Red clover, Self heal and Yarrow.

Best scattered in gardens or other private land (not recommended for use in natural habitats, here Plantlife explain why).

What's included in this mix?

Each tin has 20 seed balls. One tin 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).

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

Oxeye Daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare)

Perennial.
Height: 30-90cm
Flowers: May to September
In Austria and Germany oxeye daisies were hung inside the house as it was believed they would repel lightning.

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!

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.

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)

A perennial aromatic herb with white flowers arranged in a many flowered flat umbel head.
Height: 8-60cm
Flowers: June to August
Yarrow is a common herb that has been highly regarded for its medicinal properties in Britain since Anglo-Saxon times, it is said that Achilles used this herb to treat the wounds of his soldiers. Yarrow's pretty little flowers, usually white but can be pink, cluster together in tight groups to resemble flat umbrellas. The leaves are like feathers and are aromatic if crushed. Can be found in many grassland habitats including, waste land and some coastal dunes and stable shingle.

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.
