So What Is A Seedball?

Seed balls are a great permaculture technique for growing seed in a more simple and effective way. Seedball have applied this technique to make wildflower seed balls (and more recently herb and salad balls), as growing wildflowers from seed can be super challenging - they are slow to germinate and grow, and as a result are especially vulnerable to seed and seedling predators. Their goal is to make it a bit easier for everyone to have gardens, balconies and window boxes that are bursting with native wildflowers, buzzing bees and beautiful butterflies.

Each seed ball contains a mini ecosystem: seeds are mixed with clay, peat-free compost and a smidgen of chilli powder, and rolled into a small ball. Each ball is approximately 1cm in diameter, making them super easy to scatter.

The dried clay acts as a protective casing from common seed predators (such as ants, mice and birds). When sufficient rain permeates the clay, the seeds inside begin to germinate - helped along by the nutrients and minerals contained within the balls. The chilli powder continues to deter predators while the seed ball slowly degrades and the seeds sprout.
