A note about seed balls:
Seed balls, also known as seed bombs, protect the seeds from erosion, foraging, and many other factors. This protective property often results in a slower germination cycle. Wildflowers are also highly variable in their germination rates. Please be patient with your seed balls. If you placed them in a suitable location, soil, and climate, when the seeds are ready, they will grow!

OUR PROMISE We guarantee your satisfaction and will provide a full refund or replace your seed balls if your are not satisfied. Just contact us with your questions and we will work out a solution! We want your seed balls to grow!
