This Seedball Hedgehog Mix contains 20 Seed Balls bursting with UK Native Wildflower Seeds to encourage insects for Hedgehogs to feed on. Easy to Sow & Grow.

What's Inside?
This Seedball mix is borne out of a collaboration with the People’s Trust for Endangered Species. The UK’s hedgehog population is struggling, with numbers down by 50% since the turn of the century, but we can all do something to help by growing British wildflowers! A wildflower patch is a super addition to creating a hedgehog friendly garden, not only in providing shelter but importantly to attract a whole range of tasty insects for hedgehogs to feed on. Yum!

Proceeds from the sale of every tin go directly to supporting PTES in their conservation work. Each tin of Hedgehog Mix contains 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.

Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Yellow Rattle, Wild Carrot, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Tufted Vetch, Self Heal and Poppy.

 
Common Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)
A bright red flowering annual - hugely popular and often used as a symbol of remembrance.
Height: 30-60cm.
Flowers: May to July
The remembrance poppy is the common field poppy, one of the first wildflowers to colonise disturbed ground or fallow cornfields. It became identified with the battle zones of the First World War, or Flanders Fields, which were originally corn fields.
 
Yellow Rattle (Rhinanthus Minor)
A quick growing grassland annual with yellow flowers and two purple 'teeth'.
Height: 45cm
Flowers: May to September
 
Wild Carrot (Daucus carota)
Biennial (sometimes annual).
Height: 30-70cm
Flowers: June to August
 
Tufted Vetch (Vicia cracca)
Perennial.
Height: 20-100cm
Flowers: June to August
 
Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)
A perennial with clusters of yellow/orange pea like leaves.
Height: 15-25cm
Flowers: May to October
Lotus corniculatus is such a sunny little thing, why not try it mixed into your summer baskets and patio pots?
 
Self Heal (Prunella vulgaris)
Perennial.
Height: 10-50cm
Flowers: June to September
The common name Self heal, sometimes written as Self-heal, refers to the plant having been used as a treatment for wounds and bruises until recent times.
 
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)
Perennial with trefoil leaves and pinky red flowers. Good weed suppressor.
Height: 10-45cm
Flowers: May to September
The trifolium can help to break up heavy soil over time, plus it adds nitrogen to the soil, meaning healthy plants all round!

Seedball Hedgehog Mix also includes a sprinkling of annuals Chamomile, Cornflower, Corn marigold, and Night-flowering catchfly

A superb Eco Gift for Women, Men, Children, Gardeners and wildlife lovers alike.
