How To Make Seed Bombs: Spread the Love

by / 2 Comments / 933 View / December 8, 2014

Seed bombs are neat little packages of seeds, compost and clay. They’re fab to make and even better to spread and watch grow. Cast them throughout your yard, garden, or neglected stretches of your neighborhood. Think of it as an opportunity to green things up, especially if you choose native seeds. The wildlife will love you for it and I’m betting you and your neighbors will too. Better yet, give them as a gift.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A bowl and spoon for mixing
  • A measuring cup or other device – you’ll be measuring in parts so it could be anything: a recycled container, ladle, etc.
  • A cookie sheet or other surface that can be used for drying your seed bombs
  • Storage containers
  • One small bucket of water
  • Art clay
  • Organic compost
  • Seeds (Smaller seeds tend to hold together better but it’s always worth experimenting.) I like to use native wildflower seeds or grass seeds or a combination of both. It depends on your purpose. Are you creating a meadow, working on a restoration project or simply hoping to grow flowers in a place they haven’t grown before?
  • If you plan to give them as a gift using the trick I demonstrated in the video you’ll need toilet paper tubes, paper and ribbon.

What to do:

  • Watch my video and subscribe to my YouTube channel. Let’s get started! Spread the love.

  1. Does it matter what kind of clay to use? If so, can yo unmake a recommendation, please? Thanks!

    • I use red art clay. You can find it at a craft shop or ceramics store. Best of luck! Emily
