A Wild Time with Seed Bombs

Silent Jessie gets ready to launch a seed bomb

We all let loose a little with slingshot in hand, we each took our turn at launching seed bombs around the parking lot and surrounding roadside of the HomeGrownRadioNJ studio.

An innovative and highly interactive design company called GreenAid has developed regionally specific, wildflower seed bombs to help green up some of the duller spots in our local landscapes. Better yet, they’ve also created vending machines and put them in places where perhaps extra seeds are necessary.

Got a wonderful package from them, including simple wooden slingshot to catapult the little clay balls full of seeds at will. Of course, GD Scotty got frisky and started pointing the seed-loaded slingshot at us at one point. Boys. Geeeesh.

A perfect springtime activity! Doesn’t everyone want to get outside and fling stuff around? Why not fling spring around in the form of seeds? Brilliant. We quickly exhausted our munitions and will have to find the nearest seed bomb vending machine . . .

    I’m curious to know if this actually worked. Did any wildflowers pop up where you “bombed?” Or does it take a year? This is such a cool idea. I love it!

    Wonderful post!

    I love seed bombs too and can’t say enough about how useful I find them in my own backyard.

    They make sowing SO much easier, especially for seniors or long sighted people like me, who have a hard time with seeds and have to be very careful with sowing them.

    I was looking for them online and was a bit disappointed that most seed bombs are available as a wild flower variety.

    Finally, I found this wonderful site:

    http:\www.botanicalart.etsy.com

    They specialize in custom making seed bombs from specific varieties only. I ordered their Rudbeckia seed bombs and they started sprouting in a couple of days!!

    I look forward to some carefree sowing and gardening and plan to order more!!

    Hope this helps others get their early starts early!
