Attract beautiful butterflies to your garden with a mixture of carefully selected pink, purple & blue wildflowers.

Native Wildflowers are naturally slow to germinate and as such loose scattered seed can often be eaten by birds, ants, mice etc. These seed balls help solve the problem as the seeds are encased in a protective ball of clay, peat-free compost and chilli.

This outer barrier of clay gives protection to the seeds from predators, whilst the chilli powder deters slugs and snails whist the seed ball degrades and the seeds sprout.

Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds perennial seeds:

Purple Loosestrife, Forget-me-not, Musk Mallow, Red Campion and Yarrow.

Seedballs also contain some extra pollinator friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold and Night-flowering Catchfly- all things butterflies & bees love!

How to plant:

Simply scatter balls onto soil or compost (leaving at least 10cm between each ball). Allow rain water (or watering) to germinate the ball, this can take up to 4-6 weeks.

Watch your wildflowers become the hub of wildlife activity!

The annual seeds will flower in the first year, the perennial seeds will flower the second year and each year after that.

Watch your wildflowers become the hub of wildlife activity!

The seeds are best scattered either early Spring or late Autumn.
