The clay gradually disintegrates when it is left to the elements and the compost helps the seeds to germinate. Once the seed bombs have dried, tuck four or five of them into each pouch to give away as gardener gifts or favors. The ball prevents the seeds from being a tasty lunch for birds and insects, thereby increasing the chances of your flowers growing. A mixture is made using red clay powder, fine potting soil and enough water to form a ball – that will hold seeds inside. 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.

If it’s too dry, add a bit more water, but be aware that it probably does not need additional water, even if you think it does. I recommend air dry clay because it’s easily obtainable and I add my pressed flowers after the clay dries because some flowers can bleed color if you attach them while the clay is still drying. To know what to get, check out the National Wildlife Federation’s Native Plant Finder, which will show you a list of plants and shrubs local to your specific zip code.

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. Fukuoka may have used red powdered clay for an arbitrary reason- it was was the best available local clay. To use them, toss in hard to reach areas (only in areas where you have permission to do so) or place them in your garden and water frequently for a few weeks until the clay washes away. If you are adding decorative dried flower petals to the outside, you’ll attach them now to the side facing up by pressing them into the clay. this would allow bals to roll a bit, distribuiting seeds, stop all the seed from being exposed at once to the hazards of being eaten, and allow some variability of germination across time that could mimic broadcast patterns of natural seeds- a several week spread is common in many plants, depending on where seeds land.

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. Take a tour through a magical pollinator garden located atop a multistory apartment building in the middle of Chicago.

All you have to do here is fill a pot with rich, well-draining growing media, and place your seed ball within about halfway under the earth. The activity can take from approximately 20 minutes to an hour depending on dedication to rolling perfection!

Because they are perennials, they really need to be in an area where they can grow and thrive over the course of many years. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. As you finish each one, place them on a tray with enough room between them so they’re not touching—once they dry, it’ll be difficult to break them apart.Note: Using larger seeds can make it more difficult to roll uniformly-shaped seed bombs, so you may want to try smaller-sized seeds first. Once you have formed a ball with most of the seed and soil encases in clay – roll the damp seed bomb in a container of potting soil to coat the surface. This should make you a nice pile of damp soil which can be rolled into ball shapes roughly one inch in diameter. if you are doing this activity with children, I’d suggest doing this part ahead of time as they will extremely messy, before they get bored! Seed bombs are so easy to make and the process to make them is simple— soil and seeds are encased in clay, which then dries and hardens.
