It’s extremely easy to make seed bombs in bulk and you can get it done with very few ingredients regardless of which method you choose. com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US.

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.When making these with children make sure they know to never throw a seed bomb in a conservation area or on farm land. There are many ways to go about making seed bombs and many more reasons outside of guerilla gardening. Include some colorful construction paper for your own benefit, or if you’re making seed bombs with kids! That’s correct–rats, white footed mice, brown mice, chipmunks, rabbits, squirrels, many birds and their predators are attracted to seed balls/bombs.

Take a tour through a magical pollinator garden located atop a multistory apartment building in the middle of Chicago. The first time I tried to make a seed bomb, I couldn't find red clay powder so I decided to use the 'school clay' that comes in those big grey blocks. 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. Pro tip: You can put multiple types of seeds into your bombs, but be careful how you mix and match: sun-loving plants will thrive in a spot where a shade-loving one will die, while fast-growing greenery might out-perform and suffocate another. I see that this is an old post, but seems people surfing might run into it and find the information helpful.Pick most of this out, but a little won’t hurt as long as it doesn’t affect the chemistry significantly.

This method was develop by the Guerilla Gardeners themselves as an alternative to the classic clay ball method. Fukuoka uses a cement mixer and carefully added the clay, compost and seeds, and the turned into little balls by being rolled in the machine. Pro tip: Purchasing seeds native to your region will help ensure the health of your environment and make the seeds more apt to sprout and bloom. 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 second part of its scientific name, dioica, means 'two houses', and refers to the fact that each Red Campion plant has flowers of one sex only, so that two plants are needed to make seeds. One important caveat before you make seed bombs and spread seed bombs: avoid at all costs using seeds from species that are invasive to your locality. 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! If your dough is still a bit sticky towards the middle then roll it in the extra flour you have put onto your surface. 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.

They’re the main weapon guerilla gardeners around the world use, enabling them to sow seeds in areas that they would otherwise be unable to reach. I don’t actually know how long they will keep for when storing at this point as I have made mine with the intention of gifting them and using them right away! While you might want to get out for a neighborhood walk and toss seed bombs all over the place (and we certainly can’t blame you for that) you want to exercise some discrimination about where you do this. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centers that host Etsy. Once rolled, the seed balls are b est scattered in the Autumn, followed by Spring (but as a rule of thumb anytime except winter is fine).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. Learn how to make a seed bomb using air dry clay – because when it comes to bees, every flower counts. This should make you a nice pile of damp soil which can be gently squeezed and manipulated into ball shapes roughly one inch in diameter. If you’re doing the same, make sure you use a glue that is biodegradable— You can make an easy homemade biodegradable glue by mixing equal parts flour or cornstarch and water. There is an old belief that when you walk around the flower three times it will remove any spells that have been cast on you!
