Created in collaboration with scientists at the Natural History Museum this mix includes wildflowers that are perfect for attracting birds to our gardens to feed on seeds and insects. According to the RSPB a lack of habitat and food abundance has lead to huge decline (over 50% in the last 45 years) of many common UK garden bird species.
Our Bird Mix is designed to feed the birds for you and is a much more sustainable option to buying bagged bird feed! The careful selection of plants will boost the food supply for a wide range of birds including goldfinches blue tits chaffinches greenfinches robins starlings increasing the number of birds seen in your garden. Whilst in bloom the flowers will attract insects that many birds feed on while birds will also feed directly on the plants and seeds themselves.
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.
