Each tin contains at least 20 seed balls Each seed ball contains approximately 150 butterfly mix seeds For best results, scatter in the spring or autumn
All seed is responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers, we use only peat-free compost and our steel tins are manufactured in London (they're also super re-usable and recyclable).
Each seed ball contains a mini ecosystem: wildflower seeds are mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a smidgen of chili 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 chili 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 type of seed used is suited to that environment) and they are particularly useful in dry and arid areas where rainfall is highly unpredictable and in severely degraded land.
