I met the amazing women that created Seedball years ago through volunteer conservation work I was doing in London. Ana and Emily are conservation scientists and started Seedball from their kitchen table making wildflower mix seed balls by hand from a unique blend of seed, clay (to protect the seed from ants, mice, birds etc.) peat free compost (to give seeds a boost) and chilli powder (an extra predator deterrent). This ancient technique of seed propagation provides all the nutrition and protection that a seed requires for its early growth – which is particularly useful for growing wildflowers, as their seeds often takes longer to germinate and grow than other garden plants.
The business has grown hugely since then but it is all still handmade in London. They are doing brilliant work to help bring back our lost wildflower meadows and save our pollinators. These tins of seedballs make great gifts for any nature lover and gardener, and are they are so easy to use that everyone can have a garden, balcony or window box full of flowers, butterflies and bees. Quantity of seeds and wildflower varieties are detailed below. Simply scatter on top of soil in a garden bed or planter. Scatter in spring or autumn and you will see sprouts in 4-6 weeks. These new Limited Edition Christmas Tins make great stocking filler gifts or you can choose the full set of 3 presented in a beautiful gift box for £20.
