Seed Bombs

By SongofJoy
May 31, 2012

A fun, easy, and environmentally friendly way to plant large or difficult to reach areas is with seed bombs. A typical recipe for seed bombs is: 5 parts dry powdered natural clay, 3 parts dry organic compost,1 part seed,1-2 parts water. After mixing together all of the dry ingredients, slowly add water to the mixture until the mixture sticks together but isn't too wet or so dry and crumbly that you cannot roll it into balls. Roll into quarter-size balls. Let dry for 48-72 hours. Bombs away!

I think it's important to suggest not "bombing" in wild areas where non-native seeds/plants are considered harmful to a certain landscape. I saw someone Bomb the Sonoran Desert once and it was just wrong.

To me. seed bombing the Sonoran Desert falls under the category of "dumb". People always need to use common sense and think before they act ... or before they bomb. Use seeds of plants native to an area or those that will do no harm. Glare
