Sky Meadow

An all-blue-flowering native wildflower mix. Did you know that bees see colour in a different way to us? They respond to blue and ultraviolet light, and this mix is designed to provide an attractive mix of blue wildflowers to help attract our buzzing friends.

Each tin contains 20 seed balls, each with approximately 30 wildlife-friendly wildflower seeds (see below for plant details). These make for lovely gardening gifts, bee and butterfly gifts, eco friendly gifts or birthday gifts. They will work well in window boxes, balcony pots, garden beds and wildlife gardens.

What's inside this mix?

Each seed ball contains approximately 30 wildflower seeds for bees from a mix of Cornflower, Forget-me-not, Meadow Cranesbill, Self Heal and Wild Clary.

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. 

Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)

Annual.
Height: 90cm
Flowers: June to August
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
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
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
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
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.

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).
