Three cute little seed matchboxes packed with insect friendly wildflower seeds.
Each box is 5.8cm x 3.7cm x 1.5cm (like an old small matchbox size), and contains 6 seed balls to grow beautiful wildflowers in a window box, balcony pot or garden bed. One box will cover 1-2 pots.
Each box contains a different wildflower mix (see below for details), with each seed ball containing approximately 30 seeds.
A little card is also included to explain what the balls are and how to use them- they’re incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil/compost (no digging or expertise required!) and nature will do the rest.
Best scattered in the Autumn or Spring.
Sprouts will be seen from 2-6 weeks after sowing although regular watering will speed up the process.
Easy gardening and lots of fun, colour and flowers!
Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)
Brilliantly blue British cornflowers. These iconic and distinctive flowers are fantastic for bees, beetles, butterflies and moths, and are a simply marvellous addition to any wildlife garden. They are also edible with a cucumber-like taste, and can be used in salads, as a garnish or infused as a tea!
Common Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)
Wonderfully cute little boxes of 6 native red poppy seed balls, iconic British flowers that are fabulous for bees and butterflies. Perfect as a little gift or a treat for yourself.
Forget-me-not (Myosotis arvensis)
These delicate blue flowers grow really easily in garden beds and plant pots and are also great for popping into grooves and cracks along the edge of paving stones. They’re a short annual (will flower in the first year) with mostly blue and sometimes pink flowers.
