Varieties: Bachelor Buttons
Do not bury seed balls.
Do not break up the seed ball. They are more successful if they are kept in tact.
Keep seed balls moist until sprouts begin to grow.
Drop Seedballs onto the ground, into pots, or scatter in fields (12 to 15 inches apart, or closer for a more compact look). 8 Seedballs (per package) is enough to cover approx. 8 sq. ft. or 1 sq. ft. per ball. Each Seedball contains approximately a whole packet of seeds, depending on the seed size. Germination time is approximately 7 to 45 days. Store Seedballs in a cool, dry place.
If placed into pots the flowers will flourish, be miniature in size and floral display time is shorter. Keep Seedball moist until sprouts begin to grow, then continue to water as needed. They love full sun; if there is partial shade they may not flourish as well. Seedballs lie dormant until they are sufficiently watered and have the right temperature to start their germination; then hundreds of sprouts explode from each ball as they eagerly reach for the sun.
