Seedball launch Natural History Museum range


Award-winning eco outfit Seedball has launched a new and exclusive Natural History Museum range, designed to encourage and sustain important garden wildlife in urban and rural environments.

The range has been developed in collaboration with scientists at London's Natural History Museum and sales of the Seedball range will help support the work of the museum. Each individual mix contains native wildflower seeds that will provide food (or attract the food) for Bats, Beetles and Birds.

The Natural History Museum range includes:
• Bat Mix containing Borage, Corn Marigold, Cornflower, Evening Primrose, Night-scented Stock and Wallflower seeds and flowers from March to October
• Beetle Mix comprising Cornflower, Dark Red Great Burnet, Foxglove, Purple Common Knapweed, Purple Common Scabious, White Cow Parsley and White Yarrow and flowers from April through to October.
• Bird Mix which has Common Poppy, Corn Marigold, Great Knapweed, Sheep Sorrel, Tufted Vetch and Wild Carrot and flowers from June to October

Made from clay, peat-free compost, seeds and chilli powder, seed balls have their own mini eco-system, protecting seeds from natural predators and giving them the nutrition they need to get a head start and germinate easily. Simply throw the seed balls onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter, water well and watch them grow.

Each tin in the Natural History Museum range contains 20 seed balls which will provide coverage for 1 sq m in a garden or three to five 50-80cm pots. RRP £5.99 per tin.
