This listing comes with a mix of 25 balls in whatever warm colors I have made recently — like pink, yellow, melon, red, peach, ivory and more — packaged in a plastic envelope with the following playful planting instructions:
In these balls, little seeds wait to grow.
Just find a barren place, then give them a throw.
Water well then keep moist for 6 to 8 weeks,
Until little seedlings come out for a peek.
Many flowers will share their colors to the max.
Like baby blue eyes, purple cone flower and blue flax!
Seed Bombs are made from a mixture of more than 40 wildflower seeds. These seeds can be planted in conditions ranging from full sun to half shade, and in soils from sandy, clay or acidic to moist or dry. These seeds will happily bloom from the Northeast to the Southwest, gardening zones 2-8. Take a look at the last photo to see samples of my seed bombs sprouting!

STORING YOUR PAPER: Store your paper in any cool (not freezing), dry area that is not subject to extreme variations in temperature and humidity. Some products come packaged in an acid-free plastic envelope. If you will not be using your plantable paper right away, open the packaging so the seeds can breathe. For best germination, you should plant your paper within 12-18 months of purchase.
PLANTING YOUR PAPER: To force your plantable paper indoors, moisten the paper until damp but not wet, put in a plastic jar and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm, sunny window and you will see little seedlings in about 2 weeks! If planting outdoors, wait until all danger of frost has passed, then rake the soil, scatter the paper onto the soil, cover with 1/4 inch of topsoil, water and keep moist until germination, approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
