Grow your own kitchen garden with the Seedball Edible Mix Gift Set. This easy to grow set of three Seed Ball selections includes a Salad Mix, Herb Mix and Tea Mix.
Firstly what is a Seed Ball?
Seed balls are a great permaculture technique for growing seed in a more simple and effective way. Easy to use – no need to ‘plant’, just scatter on top of soil or compost.
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. They’ll work as well in pots as in garden beds.
