Emily and Ana – Founders of Seedball, a non-profit company – are on a mission to fill our gardens with Wildflowers. After studying conservation and recognising the huge decline of pollinators and garden wildlife over the last 50 years, Emily and Ana wanted to find a way to increase British Wildflowers and help people grow flowers in any space they have free – even in window boxes! Seedball have an innovative coating, making the planting process easy and protecting the seeds from any birds or inspects. Once they flower, they provide an important home for an abundance of garden wildlife.
