A box of 8 beautifully handmade clay pasta shapes filled with perennial wildflower seeds that bees and butterflies love! Simply place outside and water!
Yes yes I know it's bonkers and you're thinking we have lost the plot, but the truth is it's pot pasta with a difference! This is the most gorgeous volcanic red clay made into the shape of wonderful ravioli, but it's not edible to us lot, it's filled with the very very best John Innes seed compost and the most wonderful array of perennial wildflower seeds! So let's just say out loud here others use annual seeds which are far far less costly but of course only last a year (annuals) . Myself and Hen when creating these wanted to create the very best quality craft product that would help save our little guys who buzz around our gardens doing their vital work, so we thought we wanted a product that was the best of the best and use perennials which will come back year after year !
Please note these are perennial seeds, not annuals so you will have many years pleasure from them unlike annual seeds...

Please note **** You may experience the odd small crack on the pasta, this is a good thing and meant to happen as it dries, so when its time to go outside and plant, the moisture (which will be the magic needed) will create fissures which will let in the light and make the germination happen!
Villager Jim's Wildflower Ravioli should be put out between March and November. Spring and autumn provide ideal conditions as moisture and warmth are in good supply. Villager Jims Wildflower Ravioli Butterfly & Bee Seed Mix performs best in low nutrient soils, which haven’t been heavily fertilised in the past. For best results place into bare soil after clearing all existing plants and weeds from the area and water well to allow the clay to disperse and crack allowing the magic to happen!
