How to get started growing with seed balls

Creating a pollinator garden with our wildflower seed balls is a wonderful way to attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators to your garden.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  • Choose a sunny spot: Most wildflowers prefer full sun, so make sure you choose a location that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
  • Prepare the soil: Wildflowers prefer well-draining soil, so make sure to loosen the soil and remove any grass before planting.
  • Scatter the seed balls: Gently scatter the seed balls over the prepared soil and lightly press them into the ground.
  • To water or not to Water: My best advice is to let Mother Nature take over watering.
  • Be patient: Wildflowers can take some time to grow, so be patient and don't be discouraged if you don't see any growth right away.

All seeds have different requirements that kick-start them into sprouting. Some need fewer requirements than others. The purpose of these requirements is to ensure the survival of the seed by delaying growth until optimal conditions are present. Some species of Milkweed for example need freezing temperatures before they will begin to grow.
