We sell seed balls! An ancient technique for natural seed propagation – helping to fill our gardens, balconies and window boxes with native wildflowers, bees and butterflies (and more recently edible plants too!). Made from a mixture of seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chilli powder, the balls are designed to protect seeds from predators – simply scatter onto bare soil or compost and let nature take over!
