Allow us to introduce - the seedball range - a simple way to create beautiful wildflower gardens and meadows from seed.

These teeny seed bombs are:

  • Ideal for garden beds and planting pots.

Seed balls are a great technique for growing seed in a more simple and effective way.
Each seed ball contains a mini ecosystem: seeds are mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a smidgen of chilli powder, and rolled into a small ball. Each ball is approximately 1cm in diameter, making them super easy to scatter.

The dried clay acts as a protective casing from common seed predators (such as ants, mice and birds). When sufficient rain permeates the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the balls. The chilli powder continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.

Seed balls will work well in most environments (as long as the seed is well suited to the local climate and soil conditions) and they'll work as well in planting pots as in garden beds.

All seed is responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers, only peat-free compost is used and the steel tins are manufactured in London (with the help of a solar farm on the factory roof).
