Royal Entomological Society (Pack of 3)

New for Spring 2024, this exciting collaboration with the Royal Entomological Society features winning photographs from their 2022 Photography Competition.

The Royal Entomological Society is an amazing and prestigious organisation (Charles Darwin was a member!) devoted to the understanding and development of insect science, as well as seeking to share with us all how remarkable and valuable insects are. Our collaboration features three seed mixes aimed at encouraging three important invertebrate groups (see below for full details). Seedball makes a donation of £0.90 for every set of three boxes sold to The Royal Entomological Society, registered charity number 213620, www.royentsoc.org.

Each box is 5.8cm x 3.7cm x 1.5cm (like an old small matchbox size), and contains 6 seed balls to grow beautiful wildflowers in a window box, balcony pot or garden bed. One box will cover 1-2 pots.

Best scattered in the Autumn or Spring.

The mix contains Viper’s Bugloss, Hedge Bedstraw, Red Campion, Yarrow, Cornflower, Corn Marigold.

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.
