Seedballs are so so delighted to launch this new mix with their favourite contemporary artist Yvonne Coomber. Inspired by the wildflowers growing outside of her studio in Devon, Yvonne has painted a canvas for Seedball called ‘Here Is Where All The Wildflowers Grow’. They've taken a section of this painting to create this totally gorgeous design for their Artist’s Meadow Tin, with the seed mix being of those flowers from the painting.
To complete their collaboration the proceeds from the sale of every tin go to the Wildlife Trusts – a totally inspiring conservation charity working to save our wild places while bringing people closer to nature.
Each ball contains approximately 30 seeds per ball from a mix of Common Poppy, Oxeye Daisy, Musk Mallow, Corn Marigold, Purple Field Scabious, Red Campion and White Cow Parsley. Each tin has 20 seed balls, enough to cover 1 metre square in a garden bed or 3-5 medium-sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.
Seedball is a non-profit company on a massive mission to help increase the abundance of British wildflowers and wildlife that depend upon them. They believe that if we can all better use whatever space we have available to us (whether a back garden, balcony, window box, little patio etc) we can together have a hugely beneficial impact on our local ecosystems. The last 50 years has been witness to huge declines in pollinators and other garden wildlife, but together we can really really do something to reverse this. Seedball want to inspire a wildlife gardening revolution while providing a very handy way of going about it! Conservation is in their heart and soul and one day they dream of funding their own Seedball wildflower reserves.
