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!

Hi Tee!

Could you give me a couple of situations where these would be better to use than, say, traditional direct seeding methods? It sure sounds easy enough to do.

Sorry to be so slow to answer. I have been ill for awhile. This would be for areas you cannot reach easily to cultivate or large areas you might want to plant such a field.

Gotcha, thanks.

Hope you're feeling better, that must have a nasty bug to keep you off the computer.
