For this month's birthday present we have a set of seedballs for you.
"What are seedballs?" I hear you ask.
Put simply a ball of seeds held together in a clay mix.
Each seed ball contains a mini ecosystem: seeds are mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a smidgen of chilli powder, and rolled into a small ball. Each ball is approximately 1cm in diameter, making them super easy to scatter.
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 balls. The chilli powder continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.
To have set of the new single species tins (poppy, oxeye daisy and cornflower) to give away.
Find out more, order some right now or perhaps a kit to make your own: https://www.seedball.co.uk/
