Growing wildflowers from seed balls provides improved seed germination rates without the need for complex propagation. They're very easy to use - simply scatter on top of soil or compost and let nature do the rest. They'll also grow equally well in pots or other planters.

Each ball contains approximately 150 Butterfly Mix seeds, 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.

As a guide at least 20 seed balls per square meter is recommended for a garden, or 3 - 5 seed balls for a small to medium sized pot. Butterfly Mix seed balls are best scattered in the spring or autumn.
