Description

Seedball Bat Wildflowers Mix has been created in collaboration with scientists at the Natural History Museum to help garden bats. Many of our British bat species are in decline, faced with less roosting places and declining food availability. They have massive appetites, and a tiny Pipistrelle bat alone can eat over 3,000 mosquitoes a night!

Seedball Bat Wildflowers Mix contains a special mix of wildflowers to attract a wide diversity of insects that bats feed on, including flowers that release their fragrance in the evening when bats are most active in our gardens. The mix also has a plants with a combination of long and short pollen tubes and a range of colours and shapes of flower to maximise the number of insects that they attract.

Each tin contains 30 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!
