The ideal mix to attract ladybirds and pollinating beetles! Created in collaboration with the scientists at the Natural History Museum to help beetles – who are super important to our garden ecosystems. Did you know that many beetles are important pollinators who pollinated the first flowers 140 million years ago at the time of dinosaurs?
Flowers in the Carrot or Umbellifer family (Apiaceae) and those with multiple flower heads seem to be particularly attractive – making our mix of flowers perfect for beetles. 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.
