Description

Make your garden butterfly friendly with these eco-friendly wildflower mix seedball tubes designed specifically to attract butterflies into your garden recommended by Butterfly Conservation.  Each seed ball pack contains approximately 600 seeds from a mix of Purple Loosestrife, Forget-me-not, Musk mallow, Red campion, and Yarrow.

Seedballs are easy to use as everything the seed need is contained in the peat-free compost seed ball. By using the seed balls in this way it prevents the seeds from becoming a tasty lunch for birds and insects. Each ball is made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost, and chili powder. The chili powder deters slugs and snails from eating the young shoots!

How do you use Butterfly Mix Wildflower Seedball?

Simply scatter onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate! There is no need to propagate or dig a hole to plant the seed ball, this makes for super easy gardening. In the right conditions, seeds will start to sprout after 4-6 weeks.

What area will  Seedballs cover?

On average 20 seed balls will cover one square metre,. For large pots or window boxes use 8 to 12 seed balls or 3-5 seed balls for a 35cm container. Remember your wildflowers will get more abundant with each year.

How long before the Seedballs flower?

Native UK wildflowers are slow-growers compared to many of the exotic plants common to gardens. Seed balls take some time to sprout and will also take their time to fully grow and flower. While some species will flower within the first year, many will not flower until the second year. Although they require patience, growing wildflowers is a beautiful and rewarding experience for you and for wildlife.
