Saw this in Plant Delights' February newsletter:

"If you're looking for a unique gift for that half-cocked gardener in your life, how about Flowershells? So, what's a flowershell, you ask? Flowershells are made for the hunters-gardeners in your life who want to be more sustainable with their pastimes. Flowershells are 12 gauge shotgun shells filled with a mix of gunpowder and flower seed, so every time you blast away, you're planting flowers. Instead of taking a life when you shoot, you'll be giving life...what a unique concept.

If you find the idea intriguing, check out http://www.flowershell.com Unfortunately, Flowershells don't really exist, but this delightful parody comes from the fertile minds of Studio Total...a creative Swedish advertising agency."

Flowershells don't really exist


They should exist... Seed bombs have been around for years... why not flower shells?

Hmmmm, what we need are bidegradable balloons, fill
them with seed, and let children make water balloons
of them.

With, of course, instructions o use in suitable areas,
Green Grin! not pavement !
