Why seed balls?
- Wildflower seed balls help pollinators and can help grow endangered wildflowers
- Garden with seed balls all year! Learn which plants to sow and when, and you'll be getting green in the dreary midwinter!
- Protects seeds from wind, birds, squirrels, and other critters.
- Easy dispersal means more uniform coverage.
- Little hands and old eyes struggle handling tiny seeds. Marble-sized seed balls eliminate this discouraging challenge.
- They're simply good, green, fun!
You, Seed Balls, and the Great Green World.
