Seedball Bee Mix

Seedball Bee Mix

£6.00Price

Buy as a little extra present or just to scatter some love for the Bees! These are pots of 20 seedballs which can be scattered on the ground without planting, and will produce a fuss-free bed of flowers for you and the bees to enjoy! 

A mix of native wildflowers that bees will just love! This carefully selected mix is designed specifically to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram – all recommended as bee-friendly plants by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. We’ve also added a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.

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

Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

  • More Info About Seedballs

    What is Seedball? 

    A ball made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.

    Why use Seedballs? 

    The ball prevents the seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. Plus they’re super easy to use, no digging and no expert knowledge needed!

    What’s in the tin? 

    There are 20 balls in each tin, and around 30 seeds per 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 germinate!

    What area will my Seedballs cover? 

    We would usually advise 20 seed balls per square metre, or 3-5 seed balls for a 35cm container.

    Conservation: 

    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).
