Once the seed bombs have dried, tuck four or five of them into each pouch to give away as gardener gifts or favors. If clay is scarce in their immediate vicinity, they may source from lakes, ponds, seasides, or even local streams.

Just keep the ratio of the dry ingredients constant: for every extra part of potting mix, add two parts of clay. In this piece, we’ll cover different ways to make your own seed bombs, and discuss why you would even want to in the first place. It was too hard to really work like a dough, so I thought back to my elementary school days experimenting with clay and thought that it would work really well if I turned it into slip.These easy to make DIY Seed Bombs are perfect small gifts (teacher appreciation, Mother’s Day, wedding favors,etc. Hi Gill – It is worth checking the back of the packet as some seeds need to germinate on a window sill before they are planted out. IMPORTANT: Using local clay is frequently advised by other sources, however in doing so, you are likely to transport weeds with your seed balling endeavors. 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.

If you use a good compost, you don’t really need to worry too much about the nutrients in your clay.

I burst one of them by applying gentle pressure as i was curious as to how many seedlings were growing inside the ball besides the one I could see popping out the side, there were 4! When the seed bomb is thrown into a suitable landscape, rain will cause the seeds to germinate and sprout inside the ball. For this project, “air-dry” clay serves as the binding agent that holds everything together until the plant is ready to grow.However, you probably want to use seeds that are already suited to your regional climate and geology. As you finish each one, place them on a tray with enough room between them so they’re not touching—once they dry, it’ll be difficult to break them apart.
