The UK's hedgehog population has unfortunately fallen by 50% since the turn of the century, but by growing beautiful wildflowers in your garden will create a hedgehog friendly garden!
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 perennial and annual seeds including:
Yellow Rattle, Wild carrot, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Tufted Vetch, Self Heal & Poppy.
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!
