About these wonderful little tins : 

Each seed ball contains a mini ecosystem: seeds are mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a smidgen of chilli powder, and rolled into a small ball. Each ball is approximately 1cm in diameter, making them super easy to scatter.

The dried clay acts as a protective casing from common seed predators (such as ants, mice and birds). When sufficient rain permeates the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the balls. The chilli powder continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.

Seed balls will work well in most environments (as long as the seed is well suited to the local climate and soil conditions) and they'll work as well in planting pots as in garden beds. Our special wildflower seed ball recipe has been developed specifically with the UK in mind (and rest of north western Europe), and all seed used is naturally distributed within this region.
