Seedball, designedtowork well in both garden beds and balcony or window box planters. Clay acts as a protective casing from common seed predators, such as ants and birds.
No want to plant?simply scatter on top of soil or compost. Each ball contains 30 seeds apart from for Poppy Mix where each ball contains 100 seeds. Seed balls can be scattered at any time of the year, even supposing spring and autumn is regularly an optimal time to start wildflowers growing,
As a guide we recommend that you can need at least twenty seed balls per square meter (one tin). If growing in a small pot, 3 – 5 seed balls will probably be enough. For larger pots or window boxes, 8 – 12 seed balls should do the trick. The more accustomed you transform with growing seed balls, the better you can be at gauging the perfect quantities to use. Needless to say your wildflowers will get more abundant with each year.
