£6.00

Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)

Annual
Height: 90cm
Flowers: June to August
Geeklet: Cornflowers are edible. They have a cucumber-like taste. Flowers can be consumed in the form of salad and tea, or used as a garnish.

Forget-me-not (Myosotis arvensis)

Short annual with blue-grey flowers occasionally interspersed with pink flowers.
Height: 10-40cm
Flowers: April to October
Geeklet: Forget me nots have been used in the past for their astringent properties. The name Myosotis is derivation of the Latin and Greek for mouse and ears.

Meadow Cranesbill (Geranium pratense)

Perennial
Height: 30-70cm
Flowers: June to September
Geeklet: The large purple flowers of Meadow cranesbill turn into pointed, bill-like seed pods that give the plant its common name.

Self Heal (Prunella vulgaris)

Perennial
Height: 10-50cm
Flowers: June to September
Geeklet: The common name Self heal, sometimes written as Self-heal, refers to the plant having been used as a treatment for wounds and bruises until recent times.

Wild Clary (Salvia verbenaca)

Perennial
Height: 30-90cm
Flowers: June to September
Geeklet: The name ‘Clary’ comes from ‘clear-eye’, because the seeds were soaked in water to produce a jelly (rather like frogspawn) that could soothe and cleanse the eye.

How To Use

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).
