Description

We are so so thrilled to launch Seedball Artists Meadow mix with favourite contemporary artist Yvonne Coomber. Inspired by the wildflowers growing outside of her studio in Devon, Yvonne has painted a canvas for Seedball called ‘Here Is Where All The Wildflowers Grow’. Seedball have taken a section of this painting to create this totally gorgeous design for their Artist’s Meadow Tin Mix, with the seed mix being of those flowers from the painting.

To complete their collaboration, their proceeds from the sale of every tin go to the Wildlife Trusts – a totally inspiring conservation charity working to save our wild places while bringing people closer to nature.

Each tin contains 20 balls, enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed. Or 3-5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball).

How do I use Seedballs?

Throw 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 then germinate!
