A collection of fast-growing scrumptious frilly salad, including salad rocket, kale, green and red mustard and cress. Each ball contains around 30 seeds, which can be grown indoors on a sunny windowsill (keep well watered) or in a garden bed or pot. Each tin contains 20 balls, which will cover 3-5 medium sized pots – it’s best to keep at least 10cm between scattered balls. Scatter at any time from early Spring until late Autumn. Enjoy!
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.
A ball made from seeds, clay, peat-free compost and chili powder.
The ball prevents the seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. Plus they’re super easy to use, no digging and no expert knowledge needed!
There are 20 balls in each tin, and around 30 seeds per ball.
Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will germinate!
We would usually advise 20 seed balls per square metre, or 3-5 seed balls for a 35cm container.
All seed is responsibly sourced in the UK from Flora Locale accredited suppliers, we only ever use peat-free compost and our steel tins are manufactured in London (with the help of a solar farm on the factory roof).
