These seed balls will create wildflower patches to attract pollinating bees. Created by conservation scientists, they offer an new twist on ancient techniques to increase germination rates.
Native wildflowers are often slow to germinate with scattered seed eaten by ants, mice and birds. Seed balls helps to reduce this by encasing the seeds in a protective ball of clay, compost and chilli.
The barrier of outer clay means the seed is inaccessible to predators but once water permeates the clay the seeds inside will germinate.
The chilli powder continues to deter slugs and snails whilst the seeds germinate.
The seed balls are very easy to use, simply scatter on top of soil or compost and let nature do the rest.
The bag contains 100 seed balls, simply scatter the balls in areas where you want to grow patches on natural wild flowers.
The seed balls include a variety of wild meadow seeds to attract pollinating insects.
Bees are very much under threat and these seed balls are an easy way to grow wild flowers which will attract any pollinating insects into the garden.
If you wish to try a little guerrilla gardening, then this handy grab bag is ideal to be kept ready to hand.
