Thank You For Coming To My Party (Pack of 6)
Looking for the perfect eco friendly party bag filler? Look no further!
Our set of 6 ‘Thank You For Coming To My Party’ seed boxes not only make the perfect eco-friendly party bag gifts, but also provide a fun growing activity for your guests to do at home.
Each box is made from 100% recycled card and contains 6 seed balls, plus a little card to explain what the seed balls are and how to use them. What’s more, it doesn’t require any digging or expertise to use – simply scatter the seed balls on top of soil or compost and nature will do the rest (although watering regularly will speed along).
One box is enough to cover 1-2 pots, making it a fun, cute gift for both little and big ones! Available in an orange or green design, this set of 6 ‘Thank You For Coming To My Party’ seed boxes is sure to make the perfect gift that’s also beneficial to the wildlife at the same time 🙂
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 wildflower seeds for bees from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Cornflower, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram – all recommended as bee-friendly plants by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
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.
