Yay! Make your own seed balls! It’s super fun, pretty messy and a brilliant activity for all ages!
Each kit includes 3 plastic free pouches of raw materials, which when mixed together with water will create enough mix for 40-60 balls (size depending!)
1. Bee & Butterfly Friendly Wildflower seeds (see mix details below)
2. Clay powder
3. Peat-free compost
You’ll need a mixing bowl, some water and a tray to dry the balls on. Also included is an instruction sheet giving full details of how to make the balls. Making seed balls can take from approximately 20 minutes to an hour depending on your dedication to rolling perfection!
Each pouch of seed contains a mix of bee and butterfly friendly wildflowers that tend to be the quickest to grow and flower, including Poppy, Common toadflax, Cornflower, Cowslip, Meadow cranesbill, Musk mallow, Oxeye daisy and Red campion.
Once rolled, the seed balls are best scattered in the Autumn, followed by Spring (but as a rule of thumb anytime except winter is fine).
