We can all do something to provide for local wildlife so why not start today by introducing plants that will attract more birds, butterflies, bats and other wild creatures that would not have had a reason to visit you before.
Together, our gardens are a vast living landscape. With an estimated 16 million gardens in the UK, the way they are cared for can make a big difference to the natural world.
Here's some tips on how to use your Seedballs !
Seedballs are a cluster of seeds wrapped in a ball of soil and clay that are ready for planting. They work well scattered in garden beds, balconies & box planters. (A little bit of bare soil works best) When it rains the water starts to break down the clay and release the nutrients contained in every ball. With enough water, sun and warmth, the wildflower seeds inside the ball will start to germinate and little sprouts will begin to appear from the ball. This process can take 4-6 weeks from scattering.
It's a lovely activity to do with children & we hope you enjoy watching your Spring flowers emerge. The bees & butterflies will thank you.
