Seedball have teamed up with People’s Trust for Endangered Species to bring a new addition to the Seedball range: Hedgehog Mix! The UK’s hedgehog population is struggling, with numbers down by 50% since the turn of the century, but we can all do something to help by growing British wildflowers! A wildflower patch is a super addition to creating a hedgehog friendly garden, not only in providing shelter but importantly to attract a whole range of tasty insects for hedgehogs to feed on.
Proceeds from the sale of every tin from Seedball go directly to supporting PTES in their conservation work. Please do visit www.ptes.org for more info.
The seed balls are made in North London – from a mixture of UK native wildflower seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chilli powder. The outer clay protects the seeds from ants, birds and mice, 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.
All wildflowers are listed by the RHS as ‘Plants for Pollinators’.
