Description

Seedball Sky Meadow is an all-blue-flowering native wildflower mix bursting with Cornflowers, Forget-me-nots, Meadow cranesbill, Self Heal and Wild Clary.

Interesting Fact: Did you know that bees see colour in a different way to humans? They respond to blue and ultraviolet light, and this mix has been designed to provide an attractive mix of blue wildflowers to help attract our buzzing friends to your balconies and garden beds!

Each Seedball Sky Meadow tin has 20 seed balls (each containing approximately 75 seeds), enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden or alternatively 3 to 5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between the balls).

Best scattered in the Spring or Autumn.

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!

Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

    I’ve purchased quite a few of these seedball tins now for our family and as gifts, they were particularly well loved by the teachers we gifted them to last year. Great for competent gardeners and those of us that kill anything green just by looking at it. Easy for children to use and if you’re feeling daring randomly “seed bombing” suitable public places to add a splash of colour in urban areas.
