Back to nature


We initially came across these beautiful tins in our search for some forget-me-not seeds for our “sorry for your loss” box.  We loved them so much we decided they warranted having a box all to themselves. Seedballs will appeal to wildlife lovers, non-expert gardeners and children.  They are incredibly simple to use – just scatter on a bare patch of soil and the ball will provide all the care and attention a seed needs.

These products are 100% UK made. The tin packaging comes from the last tin can maker in London whose factory is powered with the help of a solar farm on their roof.  All imperfect seedballs are donated to schools or community projects. Seedball hands all profits to parent company Project Maya Community Interest Company, an eco-social enterprise working to build a global network of conservation and sustainability reserves.

This box contains:

Sky Meadow – an all blue wildflower mix perfect for bees and butterflies (forget-me-nots, meadow cranesbill, cornflower, selfheal and wild clary)

Cloud Meadow – white-flowering native wildflowers (white clover, white campion, oxeye daisy, meadowsweet, yarrow)

This box also includes a charming little book of poems about gardens with an introduction by Monty Don.

What Our Customers Say

Hello Jane, I just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you for creating friend in a box. I simply love it! Having sent a few boxes out to my friends this year I was pleasantly surprised to receive the tea and biscuits box, out of the blue from one of my closest friends. It absolutely made my day and the letter inside was so lovely I admit I shed a little tear (happy tears).

I was googling sympathy hampers for my friend who's mum died recently. Friendinabox came up. I looked through and found your tea and sympathy box. Then saw the woman power box as my other friend had just had a break up and her business was taking a dip. I just thought they were both perfect!
