The RAMM butterfly mix Seedball tin contains a mix of native wildflower seeds that are perfect for butterflies! This lovely collection of mostly purple, pink and blue flowers is designed to attract butterflies to our gardens, balconies and window boxes and uses only flowers recommended by Butterfly Conservation.
A seedball is a mini ecosystem, protecting your seeds from birds, ants and slugs and giving them nutrition as they germinate and grow. As the wildflower seeds are encased in clay and peat-free compost, they are essentially already “planted”. Simply scatter onto bare soil or compost. The outer clay helps to prevent birds and insects from eating the seeds, keeping the seeds nicely protected.
Seedball are an award-winning non-profit company on a mission to help increase the abundance of British wildflowers and wildlife that depend upon them. ‘We believe that if we can all better use whatever space we have available to us (whether a back garden, balcony, window box, little patio etc) we can together have a hugely beneficial impact on our local ecosystems.’
- 1 tin (approx 6cm diameter) contains 20 seedballs, enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball).
