Wildlife Collection Seed Boxes

Seedball

In a year where many of us have found a deeper connection with our outdoor spaces and the wildlife that inhabits it, we were inspired to create a collection of wildflower mixes that supports some of our most iconic British backyard nature friends. Each beautifully illustrated box contains 6 wildflower seed balls, making for a wonderfully eye catching set and an ideal gift for wildlife lovers of all ages. Suitable for both expert gardeners or people with no previous experience of gardening. Grows well in pots and window boxes as well as in garden beds. All you need is a patch of soil or compost and some rain :) One box will cover 1-2 pots. Use 6 boxes per square metre in a garden. Best scattered in Spring or Autumn. Collection sold as a set of 6 boxes plus an information card with details on each wildflower mix. Each box also includes a little insert with information on how to use the balls. Seed Box Dimensions: 5.8cm x 3.7cm x 1.5cm. Each seed ball is just under 1cm in diameter.

Materials Description

We make the balls ourselves from a mixture of UK wildflower seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chilli powder. The outer clay protects means that the seeds are inaccessible to ants & birds, and once sufficient water has permeated the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the ball. The chilli powder continues to deter slugs and snails while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout. Bee Box 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. Includes birdsfoot trefoil, foxglove, red Clover, viper’s bugloss and wild marjoram. Butterfly Box This lovely collection of mostly purple, pink and blue flowers is designed to attract butterflies to our gardens, balconies and window boxes and uses only flowers recommended by Butterfly Conservation. Includes purple loosestrife, forget-me-not, musk mallow, red campion and yarrow. Hedgehog Box A wildflower patch of is a super addition to creating a hedgehog friendly garden, not only in providing shelter but importantly to attract a whole range of tasty insects for hedgehogs to feed on. This mix includes yellow rattle, wild carrot, birdsfoot trefoil, tufted vetch, self heal and poppy. Bird Box This careful selection of plants will boost the food supply for a wide range of birds including goldfinches, blue tits, chaffinches, greenfinches, robins, starlings, increasing the number of birds seen in your garden. Whilst in bloom the flowers will attract insects that many birds feed on, while birds will also feed directly on the plants and seeds themselves. Includes corn marigold, poppy, greater knapweed, sheep sorrel, tufted vetch, and wild carrot. Beetle Box The ideal mix to attract ladybirds and pollinating beetles, who are really important for our garden ecosystems (did you know that beetles pollinated the first flowers at the time of the dinosaurs!). The mix includes common knapweed, cornflower, cow parsley, field scabious, foxglove, great burnet and yarrow. Bat Box Contains a special mix of wildflowers to attract a wide diversity of insects that bats feed on (such as moths), including flowers that release their fragrance in the evening when bats are most active in our gardens. The mix also has 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. Includes borage, cornflower, corn marigold, evening primrose, night-scented stock and wallflower. All seed boxes and outer packaging made from 100% recycled card.
