The Seed Bomb is the ultimate gardening weapon. It is composed of tons of flower seeds encased into a ball of recycled paper pulp that is leftover after I make a batch of handmade plantable paper. Simply throw the seed bomb into an ugly place that needs a little color, water and keep moist until germination then watch wildflowers grow.

Each order comes with a mix of 30 balls in at least 5 different colors but often as many as 15 different colors, packaged in a plastic envelope with an explanation of what they are and how to grow them. Colors will vary depending on what colors of handmade paper I have recently made. If you would like specific colors, send me a convo.

Seed bombs make great favors for an eco-friendly wedding or birthday party, a sweet house-warming gift or a present for the gardener in your life. Give them to teachers so they can put them in a glass jar then place in a sunny place to watch them sprout with their class. I have even had customers use them at funerals and memorial services to give out to guests so that they can plant them in memory of a loved one.

Seed Bombs are encased into a paper pulp that is dried into a hard little ball. The paper protects the seeds until the spring rains soak the paper, making it swell and fall apart so the seeds can grow and bloom. I love recycling, repurposing and reusing, and these seed bombs are the perfect end to a batch of paper.

These tags have been made using recycled paper and 27 wildflower seeds: 16 annuals for first-year color, plus 11 perennials or biennials for second and successive years' bloom. Convo me for a full list of the seeds but here’s a little taste: Nigella damascena (Love In A Mist), Silene armeria (Catchfly). Cosmos bipinnatus (Wild Cosmos), Papaver rhoeas (Red Poppy), Helianthus annuus (Sunflower), Linum grandiflorum rubrum (Scarlet Flax), Dianthus barbatus (Sweet William) and Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower).

I purchase my seeds from American Meadows. For more info about wildflower seeds, go here: http://www.americanmeadows.com/wildflower-gardening/wildflower-how-to/wildflower-seed-planting-instructions
