Description

A set of 6 beautifully illustrated seed boxes from Seedball each containing a mix of seeds to help and encourage wildlife into your garden. Each box (made from 100% recycled card) contains 6 seed balls, plus a little card insert to explain what the balls are and how to use them. Incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil or compost and nature will do the rest! One box will cover 1-2 pots. Use 6 boxes per square metre in a garden. Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

There’s no need to dig! As the seeds are encased in clay and peat-free compost, they are essentially already “planted”. Simply scatter onto bare soil or compost (avoid scattering on grass) on a garden bed or in a pot. The outer clay helps to prevent birds and insects from eating the seeds, keeping the seeds nicely protected and ensuring your wildflower garden has every chance of growing success. There is also added chilli powder in the seed ball recipe to help deter slugs and snails from eating the young shoots.
