About this deal

If you’ve chosen to keep different colored paper separated, pulse them in an isolated food processor session. These are standards in the ceramics industry – high fire, low fire, and porcelain clay bodies are all fine. Simply toss them into hard to reach areas (on your own property, or where you have permission to plant) and wait a few weeks after a good rainfall for them to sprout. Not only will this make you more successful in your venture, you’re going to save yourself a lot of time an effort, as native wildflower seed bombs contain seeds that are already adapted to the local climate and geology. The seed bomb kit contains 22 native species of seeds - a 100% wildflower mix, perfect for seeding into existing grasslands.

This really didn't work very well as it would take you about 3 days to work the seeds into the clay! For this project, “air-dry” clay serves as the binding agent that holds everything together until the plant is ready to grow.

Below I’ve outlined what I did to create my own seed bombs (which are all sprouting nicely) using easily sourced materials in the UK.Ingredients: Clay powder, wool compost (organic and Soil Association approved), seeds (a mix of 22 native wildflowers). Helping invasive species germinate in your community will offset the good done by making seed balls to begin with.

Seed balls have been a recognised technique for successful germination of strong plants for millennia. IMPORTANT: Using local clay is frequently advised by other sources, however in doing so, you are likely to transport weeds with your seed balling endeavors. It really depends on how large you make them and how much soil/compost you end up using for each one. I mean… anyone can chuck a few seeds in some clay and take photos, but the important thing about a seed bomb is that it actually facilitates the growth of the seeds inside.Working with a small amount of soil mixture at a time, roll the mixture between your palms until it forms a smooth ball. Also known as the Earth Dumping Method, gardeners use native clay to bind flower seeds into a seed ball which quickly adapts to the local environment.

These hardy wildflowers will attract bees and butterflies, and turn neglected areas into mini nature havens. This seed bomb kit contains a packet of wool compost, a packet of clay and a packet of seeds, with instructions, providing enough materials for 20 - 30 seed balls. If you are looking for more fun bee garden focused projects, consider a small bee waterer project for the young ones – or a larger bee watering station for older crafters. There are many of different ways to make seed bombs, and we’ll cover a few of them, including the Fukuoka Method — which is perhaps the best way to seed bomb.Now that the weather has finally decided to warm up a bit, you might want to get your children to partake in a little bit of Seed Bombing. In this piece, we’ll cover different ways to make your own seed bombs, and discuss why you would even want to in the first place. Millie is making 3 types of seed balls – a simple version using clay only, a combination version that uses clay and fertiliser and version using clay from her own garden!
