Seedball Seed Bombs | Tin of 20 Seedballs
These little Seed Bombs are remarkable.
A revolutionary way to create entire wildflower gardens and vast meadows from just a small ball of seeds! Each seed bomb contains a mini ecosystem of British wildflower seeds mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a sprinkle of chilli powder, all rolled up into a little ball. And each of these seedballs contains all the nutrients and minerals they need, so that when a sufficient amount of rain permeates the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate and will transform into a beautiful array of your chosen wildflower. Now the clever bit. To aid the growth of your chosen combinations of seeds the dried clay acts as a protective casing from common seed predators (such as ants, mice and birds), and the chilli powder continues to deter these predators while the seed bomb slowly degrades and the seeds sprout. Seed bombs make a lovely gardening gift for nature-lovers, avid gardeners and keen conservationists alike, they're great if you’re having trouble growing plants or just getting started in your garden.
Seed Balls are a part of a much larger eco-social enterprise.
Project MAYA is a remarkable organisation working to build a global network of reserves. Conservation is very important to us, even outside in your back garden you can contribute to conserving stunning wildflowers and the buzz of natures wildlife. UK gardens are one of the most important havens for wildlife ñ totalling about 270,000 hectares: an area larger than all the designated National Nature Reserves combined! So here with Seed Ball we bring to you a fun, practical and efficient way to help fill these gardens with beautiful wildlife and create biodiversity without costing the earth.
