Seedball - A Simpler Way To Grow From Seed {Review}

I absolutely love wildflowers, I used to have loads growing but since we've moved here I haven't planted any. We've been spending the summer making crafts to encourage wildlife in our garden as well as researching bee and butterfly friendly plants, and planting a few! I recently discovered this amazing company called Seedball who create balls of wildflower seeds (and herb and salad balls!) Each ball is about 1cm and are made up of seeds, compost, clay and chilli powder. I was so excited when we were given the chance to review a selection of different seed balls.
The seed balls we were sent were from the Wildflower Range. As soon as I opened the package I knew I was going to be impressed. The little tins are really lovely and each one contains approximately 20 seed balls. We received Bee Mix & Butterfly Mix, Shade Mix, Urban Meadow, Sky Meadow and Cloud Meadow. 


What's fantastic about them is that you don't really need to 'plant' them. You just scatter your seed balls and let nature take over. You can grow them in pots or plants, or even just scatter them straight in your garden. We decided to pop some into pots so we could watch them grow. My little ones had loads of fun filling up pots with compost and scattering the seed balls on top. We only did this a few weeks ago, and every single pop already has at least 2 sprouts! I am really impressed already! 


Seed balls are such a fantastic idea, I love them. You don't have to be a brilliant gardener, you don't have to have a lot of room, heck you don't even necessarily need a garden, just an outdoor space where you can scatter a few seed balls. The chilli powder and the clay help the seeds to grow and protect them from predators so you can pretty much pop them anywhere. Not only are they easy to grow, but it's a fantastic way to help the environment and encourage wildlife into your garden. I am so chuffed with these, I can't wait for my flowers to grow! I highly recommend you checking out their website.

Have you got any wildflowers growing in your garden?
