Your Bat Seedball Mix has been created in collaboration with scientists at the Natural History Museum to help garden bats. Many of our British bat species are in decline, faced with less roosting places and declining food availability. They have massive appetites, and a tiny Pipistrelle bat alone can eat over 3,000 mosquitoes a night!
This Bat Seedball Mix contains a special mix of wildflowers to attract a wide diversity of insects that bats feed on, including flowers that release their fragrance in the evening when bats are most active in our gardens. The mix also has plants with a combination of long and short pollen tubes and a range of colours and shapes of flower to maximise the number of insects that they attract.
- Each tin of Bat Seedball Mix contains 20 seed balls (30 seeds in each ball). Enough to cover 1 sqm in a garden bed or 3-5 seed balls for a 35cm container (leave at least 10cm between each ball).
- Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.
- Made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.
- All seeds are responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers and they only ever use peat-free compost.
- Packaged in steel tins that are manufactured in London (with the help of a solar farm on the factory roof).
Why use a seedball instead of ordinary seeds?
The ball prevents the seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. Plus they’re super easy to use, no digging and no expert knowledge needed!How to use
Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate!
