A simple way to grow from seed. Clay ball (plus added chili) naturally protects seed from predators, such as ants, birds and slugs. Easy to use - no need to 'plant', just scatter on top of soil or compost. Ideal for garden beds, planting pots and window boxes.
Each tin contains 20 seed balls.
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 Salad Mix seeds.
As a guide at least twenty seed balls per square meter is recommended for a garden, or 3 - 5 seed balls for a small to medium sized pot.
Sprouts seen in 1-2 weeks (regular watering can speed up the process).
Scatter from spring through to the end of summer.
Leaving some plants to flower will provide tasty food for bees and butterflies too.
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.
