Wildflower Lawn

Bring back childhood memories of daisy chains , dandelion clocks and buttercup games while providing nectar rich wildflowers for pollinators.

Wildflower Lawn can be scattered on bare soil with or without grass seed, or you can grow these amongst your existing lawn by cutting out little patches for the balls (please note they are not likely to grow if scattered directly onto your lawn, you will need to create little patches of bare earth first and water the balls in well). Yay!

Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Buttercup, Dandelion, White Clover, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Red Clover, Common Knapweed – low growing wildflowers which can often be spotted within grassy areas or grazed fields.

Each bag contains 100 seed balls, enough to cover 5 metre square 15-25 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

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).
