Spread the festive cheer in your garden, so even your little wildlife friends can enjoy it too!
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.
