National Trust Seedball Tins, Butterfly Friendly Mix

National Trust Seedball Tins, Butterfly Friendly Mix


Reviews (1)

A simple way to grow wildflowers from seed.

Using only wildflower species recommended by Butterfly Conservation, this butterfly mix includes both early and late summer flowering plants.

These National Trust branded seed balls are easy to use as there is no planting required.

Simply scatter on to soil or compost and the pods do the rest.

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 chilli powder continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.

For best results, scatter in the spring or autumn.

Each tin contains 20 seed balls.

Each seed ball contains approximately 75 butterfly mix seeds.

Ideal for garden beds and planting pots.

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.

All seed is responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers, we only ever use peat-free compost and the steel tins are manufactured in London (with the help of a solar farm on the factory roof).

Dimensions: 2 H x 6.5 Dia cm

Material: Seeds, Clay, Peat-free compost, Chilli powder and Tin
