Little Tins of Seasonal Seeds
Award-winning eco outfit Seedball has the perfect green gifts for Christmas – the Italian Herb Kitchen Grow Kit and Limited Edition Seasonal Seedballs
The Limited Edition Seasonal Seedballs are a festive spin on three of Seedball’s best loved tins – Bee Merry, Let it Snow! and Wonderland.
Bee Merry – brilliant for bees and contains foxglove, red clover, wild marjoram, chamomile, corn marigold and cornflower.
Let it Snow! – a stunning all-white flowering wildflower mix for bees and butterflies that contains meadowsweet, white clover, oxeye daisy, white campion and yarrow.
Wonderland – for magical forests and also shady spots in your garden or balcony containing red campion, ragged-robin, bellflower, meadow buttercup, meadowsweet, forget-me-not and oxeye daisy.
Seedball’s Italian Herb Kitchen Grow Kit is a brilliant and easy way to start growing your own parsley, basil and oregano from seed – and it’s a 100 per cent green gift using recycled natural and organic materials that can be re-used and re-cycled.
Each recycled aluminium pod contains two peat-free coir discs and one Seedball with five to 10 organic herb seeds. Fill the pod with warm water and watch the coir disc expand, then place the seed ball on top where it can slowly soak up enough moisture to grow. The seeds start sprouting in a few weeks and once the seedlings appear above the top of the pod transfer them into a bigger pot to grow fully – leaving a re-usable container with cork stopper for storing dried herbs.
Made from clay, peat-free compost, seeds and chilli powder, seed balls have their own mini ecosystem, protecting seeds from birds, ants and slugs and giving them the nutrition they need to get a head start and germinate easily. Simply throw them onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter, water well and watch them grow in just a few weeks – easy!
Seasonal Seedballs available individually (£6) or as a set of three tins (£18) with 20 Seedballs in each tin
