Created in collaboration with scientists at the Natural History Museum to help garden bats. Many of our British bat species are in decline faced with less roosting places and declining food availability. They have massive appetites and a tiny Pipistrelle bat alone can eat over 3 000 mosquitoes a night!
Bat Mix contains a special mix of wildflowers to attract a wide diversity of insects that bats feed on including flowers that release their fragrance in the evening when bats are most active in our gardens. The mix also has a plants with a combination of long and short pollen tubes and a range of colours and shapes of flower to maximise the number of insects that they attract.
Each ball contains approximately 30 seeds per ball and each tin will provide coverage for 1 square metre in a garden or 3-5 medium sized pots. Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.

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.
