Each 250g tube of Shade Mix Seed Balls provides coverage of approximately 15m². Each Seed Ball contains between 30 and 50 seeds, depending on the variety.
Seed Balls work well in both garden beds, on balconies or even in window boxes. No need to plant them, simply scatter on top of the soil.
The clay outer acts as a protective casing from common predators such as ants & birds and the chilli powder in the clay continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.
The seeds begin to germinate when sufficient rain permeates the clay, helped along by the nutrients contained within the ball.
For the best results sow in Spring and Autumn and keep well watered to help germination.

Ideally sow in Spring and Autumn. Scatter the Seed Balls onto well-raked soil. Sprouts should be seen within 2-6 weeks, although regular watering will speed up the process.
Wildflowers can be treated as normal bedding plants but are hardier.
