Make Your Own Seed Bombs!

It’s that time of year to seed bomb the city! I found this basic recipe for seed balls on Heavy Petal, last year and it works great:

  • 5 parts dry red clay*
  • 3 parts dry organic compost
  • 1 part seed**
  • 1 – 2 parts water

We used a 16oz. plastic cup as a measure, which made enough for approximately 300 seedballs. After mixing together all the dry ingredients, we added enough water to form a mix that held together without crumbling but wasn’t so wet that it wouldn’t roll into balls. Pinching off small bits of the lovely mud, we rolled penny-sized balls and set them in trays. They will sit on my windowsill for three or four days until completely dry.
