Mum’s Meadow is a limited edition version of the Plantlife Mix, with proceeds from the sale of this tin supporting the charity (this information is shown on the reverse of the tin). The mix includes five native wildflowers that are most likely to thrive in the nutrient rich soils commonly found in our gardens.
Each ball contains approximately 30 seeds per ball from a mix of Meadow buttercup, Oxeye daisy, Red clover, Self heal and Yarrow. 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.
