How to make Garden seed bombs

These simple Garden Seed Bombs will be a huge hit. An easy and fun project you can make with your kids just in time for Earth day. This is gardening more along my speed, a fun garden you just toss in and let the Earth do all the work.  Seed bombs are perfect because  sometimes conditions can be dry, overly hot or cold, and windy making life hard on a germinating seed. Seed balls buffer these harsh conditions and help make growing flowers a success.

What you’ll need : 

  • 6 pieces Construction Paper, assort. colors
  • 3-5 pkg. Flower Seeds
  • Food Processor
  • Scissors
  • Water

 

Directions

 

Cut each piece of paper into about 1-inch squares and put them into a small dish. Keep each paper color in its own dish.

Fill each dish with water just until the paper is covered. Soak the paper for about 20 minutes.

Take one of the bowls of paper and wring it out about halfway. Put it in the food processor and pulse the paper into a pulp. Repeat this with all the paper colors and put the pulp back into each of their bowls.

Sprinkle some seeds into each bowl of paper, mix them in a little, and press the pulp and seeds into balls. If the pulp is a little dry, put a few sprinkles of water on the pulp. It will help it to hold its shape better.

Set overnight

Set the seed balls on a sheet pan to dry overnight.

Plant in your garden or anywhere you want flowers to grow.Have you ever wanted to know how to make garden seed bombs? Here's your chance!

    This is so awesome! I never knew something like this amazing. My oldest daughter love to plant seeds and grow her flowers and veggies. I know she will want to make these. I’m also going to show this to my youngest’s preschool teacher.

    What is the advantage of doing these over just direct sowing?
