Based out of Seattle, I am a landscape architect and a gardener. Garden Bon Bons (TM) is what happened when I combined passion and profession.
I had heard about seed balls or seed bombs several years ago and they had caught my imagination. Once I saw them however, they weren't nearly as exciting as imagined - I had an image of a baseball-sized clod of earth exploding gently in mid-air and scattering in a wide arc. Seed balls are much different in reality. They've been around for centuries and historically they are little coin sized balls of clay, compost soil and seed. The compost provides extra nutrients in case they are planted in poor soil conditions and the clay keeps insects and small animals from walking off with the seed. They really just need sunshine and water to grow anywhere. Native Americans used them and they are used around the world as a form of sustainable agriculture…
