After providing information such as your state and some details about the area you want to cover, the site will tell you where you might find the seeds you need for your bombs. It was too hard to really work like a dough, so I thought back to my elementary school days experimenting with clay and thought that it would work really well if I turned it into slip. What better way to celebrate than by making wildflower seed bombs which will provide habitat and food for our essential pollinators?

The 2 most commonly used types of clay for making seed bombs are “air-dry” clay and red clay powder (mentioned under variations). Seed balls become seed bombs when adopted by the urban guerrilla and chucked into places that will brighten and blossom from an area of dereliction to a wildlife haven. It should be a balanced mix of sapric (smeary) and hemic (fibrous, but unrecognizably decomposed) materials, without much of any fibric (still recognizable) components.

Using the miracle grow compost/seed mix worked really well, but unfortunately there is no way to actually tell how many seeds are in the measured compost, so it’s a bit of a gamble. Using a few simple ingredients and your own two hands, we’ll show you how to whip up a single batch of wildflower seed bombs, and you can multiply the recipe to make even more. I received my first introduction to seed bombs via a recent random conversation with a friend, and I thought it would be an excellent idea to make some of my own with wildflower seeds to spread on our adventures walking through the countryside. I also decided that children and chilli powder probably wasn't a good idea so left out that ingredient! Wildflower seed bombs are not only a breeze to create, they also make a great affordable handmade gift when packaged in hand-stamped muslin pouches.

Dry them on a paper towel, and once they’re completely dry, cover the smallest hole, and insert the seeds in the larger hole. Once all of your seed bombs are dry, you can plant them in indoor or outdoor pots, your yard, or in neglected patches of soil you’re allowed to access. Working with a small amount of soil mixture at a time, roll the mixture between your palms until it forms a smooth ball. The dried seed ball can sit dormant for as long as the seed is viable, but for best results deploy them in the following season.So of course, I consulted the Google with my query and found many pages with recipes for how to make seed bombs/balls, but they mostly seemed to involve clay powder, which I was having trouble sourcing. Guerilla gardeners also use seed bombs as a mode of ecological land management, dropping seed bombs in neglected fields and medians to provide food for wildlife.

Native species have not only relationships with themselves and humans but also lots of the wildlife that is native to this region. red powdered clay in his case was the local clay- he lived in the semitropical climate of shikoku, where red clay is abundant. They will send up leaves and work on their root system and come back bigger and better the next year.
