Bird Seed Mix - Seedball (Last Available)
A mix of wildflowers that is 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.
Includes corn marigold, common poppy, greater knapweed, sheep sorrel, tufted vetch and wild carrot.
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds.
1 tin of Bird Mix contains 20 seed balls, enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed or 3-5 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball).
Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.
The Ball is made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder. It prevents seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. Plus they’re super easy to use, no digging and no expert knowledge needed!
Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate!
The creators of Seedball want to fill the world with wildflowers and they're starting with your garden!
Seedball is a non-profit company on a mission to help increase British wildflowers and wildlife dependent upon them. Together we can have a huge beneficial impact on our local ecosystems. The last 50 years has been witness to huge declines in pollinators and garden wildlife, but together we can do something to reverse this. They want Seedball to inspire a wildlife revolution while providing a handy way of going about it! All seed is sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers, they only use peat-free compost and the tins are manufactured in London (with the help of a solar farm on the factory roof).
