Mini-meadow pots that are an all in one gift set for anyone who loves wildflowers and garden wildlife. Everything you need is in the box, all you need to do is add water.
• A set of 3 biodegradable and compostable bamboo pots and saucers
• Peat-free coir discs
• 12 wildflower seed balls
• Full instructions on how to use
A carefully selected mix of native wildflowers designed specifically to attract solitary bees, honey bees and bumblebees. Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxglove, Red Clover, Viper’s Bugloss and Wild Marjoram – all recommended as bee-friendly plants by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Each seed ball also contains a sprinkling of pollinator-friendly annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly.
The sets are available in three varieties: Garden Meadow, Bee Mix and Butterfly Mix, and include full instructions of how to use on the back of the box.
All cardboard packaging (including the Seedball packs) is made from 100% recycled card and vegetable inks and can be safely composted. The coir discs are made from the natural fibres found on the outer shell of coconuts which expand when water is added, turning into a great growing medium.
The pots are best positioned outdoors, on a windowsill or garden table for example, and can be set up at any time of the year (although early Spring and Autumn are the very best times to start).
The balls are made from a mixture of UK wildflower seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chilli powder. The outer clay protects means that the seeds are inaccessible to ants & birds, and once sufficient water has permeated the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the ball. The chilli powder continues to deter slugs and snails while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.
