Inspired by the wildflowers growing outside of her studio in Devon, Yvonne Coomber has painted a canvas for Seedball called ‘Here Is Where All The Wildflowers Grow’. A section of this painting has been taken to create this totally gorgeous design for the Artist’s Meadow Tin, with the seed mix being of those flowers from the painting.
Each ball contains approximately 30 seeds per ball from a mix of Common Poppy, Oxeye Daisy, Musk Mallow, Corn Marigold, Purple Field Scabious, Red Campion and White Cow Parsley. Each tin has 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.
How to use 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.
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).
