Cress (Greek - Lepidium sativum)
A versatile salad item with a nice peppery flavour.
Kale (Red russian - Brassica oleracea)
Kale is also one of the most nutritious leafy vegetables you can find. Packed full of vitamins, antioxidants and iron! It can be eaten raw (best when leaves are young or steamed) or added to stir fry recipes.
Mustard (Green frills - Brassica juncea)
Spice up your salads and sandwiches with these bright green shoots which become serrated as they grow.
Mustard (Red frills - Brassica juncea)
The attractive and sweet leaves are finely serrated when young, then look more like mizuna when mature. The fringer burgundy-red leaves add the taste of mustard and horseradish to salads, stir fry recipes and sandwidches.
Salad rocket (Dentellata - Eruca vesicaria ssp. sativa)
A lovely peppery flavour to salad, the younger leaves are milder, more tender and palatable. Leaves can also be lightly cooked as a delicious spinach substitute, added to sauces, stir fried or sautéed.
Seedball is made by encasing a seed in a protective ball of clay, compost and chilli.
100% UK made and manufactured.
Seed balls are incredibly easy to use simply scatter onto bare soil or compost (avoid scattering on grass) on a garden bed or in a pot, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. The outer clay helps to prevent birds and insects from eating the seeds, keeping the seeds nicely protected and ensuring your bee and butterfly friendly wildflower garden has every chance of growing success.
We only ever use peat-free compost and all of our wildflower seed is sourced from Flora Locale accredited suppliers.
We care about our world and we want to do everything we can to help more people grow wildflowers in the most sustainable way possible.
