About - Welcome to Seedball

Created by conservation scientists, Seedball offers a new twist on an ancient technique for increasing seed germination rates – helping to fill our gardens, balconies and window boxes with native wildflowers, bees and butterflies.

Native wildflowers are naturally slow to germinate, and as such, loosely scattered seed can often be eaten by ants, birds and mice. Seedball helps to solve this problem by encasing the seed in a protective ball of clay, compost and chilli.

A barrier of dried outer clay means that the seed is inaccessible to predators, and once sufficient water permeates the clay, the seed inside will 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.

Seed balls are incredibly easy to use – simply scatter on top of soil or compost (no digging or expertise required!) and nature will do the rest.

Established in 2012, Seedball is a multiple award-winning gardening product that appeals to gift-givers, non-expert gardeners, and to people who are keen to support their back-garden wildlife. It’s also ideal for

people with limited mobility as well as offering a fun educational tool for children learning about nature.

Social Media

A strong social media presence has been key to the growth of Seedball’s brand and reach.
