A careful selection of native wildflower seeds that bees will just love! Our mix uses only species recommended by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, and includes both early and late summer flowering plants.

CREATED BY CONSERVATION SCIENTISTS: Our special recipe protects seeds as they grow.

Growing wildflowers from seed balls provides improved seed germination rates without the need for complex propagation. They're very easy to use - simply scatter on top of soil or compost and let nature do the rest. They'll also grow equally well in pots or other planters so ideal for urban flats with window boxes.

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

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.

Bee mix seed balls are best scattered in the spring or autumn, and each ball contains approx 100 Bee Mix seeds. 20 balls per tin.

Germination and growing results are the responsibility of the purchaser, factors such as planting time, watering, pest presence and weather conditions will influence successful growth.

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