Project Maya Forget-Me-Not Seed Balls, 55gm.
Ideal for garden beds and balcony or window pots, seed balls provide a simpler way to grow wildflowers from seed – just scatter onto bare soil and the ball will provide all the care and attention a seed needs. Each tin contains 20 seed balls and each ball contains approx. 100 forget-me-not seeds (great for bees and butterflies!), peat-free compost, clay and chilli powder. The dried clay acts as a protective casing from common seed predators (such as ants, mice and birds). When sufficient rain permeates the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the ball. The chili powder continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout. Use 20 seed balls per m2 in a garden, or 3-5 balls for a medium pot. Best scattered in the autumn. seedball.co.uk
