Poppy (Pack of 3)

3 poppy seed ball boxes – beautiful native wildflowers for garden beds and pots, Simply scatter and let nature do the rest!

Wonderfully cute little boxes of 6 native red poppy seed balls, iconic British flowers that are fabulous for bees and butterflies. Perfect as a little gift or a treat for yourself.

Each box (made from 100% recycled card) contains 6 seed balls, plus a little card to explain what the balls are and how to use them. Seed balls are incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil/compost (no digging or expertise required!) and nature will do the rest! One box will cover 1-2 pots. Use 3 boxes per half square metre in a garden.

Best scattered in the Autumn or Spring. If scattering in Spring we recommend popping the seed balls in the fridge for a couple of weeks first to give them a little cold blast – this aids germination 🙂

Please note that this listing is for three boxes.

Common Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)

A bright red flowering annual - hugely popular and often used as a symbol of remembrance.
Height: 30-60cm.
Flowers: May to July
The remembrance poppy is the common field poppy, one of the first wildflowers to colonise disturbed ground or fallow cornfields. It became identified with the battle zones of the First World War, or Flanders Fields, which were originally corn fields.

How to use Seedballs

What is 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).
