Royal Entomological Society Seedball Box

Each box contains 6 seed balls to grow beautiful wildflowers in a window box, balcony pot or garden bed. One box will cover 1-2 pots.

The Royal Entomological Society is an amazing and prestigious organisation (Charles Darwin was a member!) devoted to the understanding and development of insect science. Seedball's collaboration features three seed mixes aimed at encouraging three important invertebrate groups (see below for full details). Seedball makes a donation of £0.90 for every set of three boxes sold to The Royal Entomological Society.

Meadow Mix: A wildflower and grasses mix to support meadow invertebrates such as grasshoppers, spiders and beetles. Helping to encourage as wide a range of wildlife as possible is super important for maintaining healthy meadow ecosystems. The mix contains Oxeye Daisy, Common Knapweed, Yellow Oat-grass, Lady's Bedstraw and Cat Grass.

Pollinators Mix: To encourage all pollinators, including those that are lesser known such as the hummingbird hawk-moth. This species of hawk-moth is a day flying moth which feeds on the nectar of tube-shaped flowers using their long proboscis while hovering in the air. The mix contains Viper’s Bugloss, Hedge Bedstraw, Red Campion, Yarrow, Cornflower, Corn Marigold.

Damp Soil Mix: A mix to support invertebrates in wetland habitats or areas of damp soil. These areas are host to an abundance of important invertebrate life, including damselflies (featured on the box) and dragonflies. The mix includes Purple Loosestrife, Hedge Bedstraw, Lesser Knapweed, Meadow Buttercup, Oxeye Daisy, Ragged Robin.

A little card is also included to explain what the balls are and how to use them- they’re incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil/compost (no digging or expertise required!) and nature will do the rest.

Best scattered in the Autumn or Spring.

Packaging

100% Recycled cardboard.

How To Use

How do I use Seedballs?

Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball.

Your seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate.

 

What area will my Seedballs cover?

One seed box will cover 1-2 pots. Use 6 boxes per square metre in a garden.

Materials

Recycled card.

Each box contains 6 seed balls and around 30 wildflower seeds per ball.

Each seed ball is made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.
