It's a combination of rich soil, some regular air dry clay and seeds of your choice. A seed ball is so easy to plant. You toss them wherever you'd like to add some flowers...a flower bed, along a highway or median, along pathways...get creative! It's a perfect activity to do with kids of all ages. The combination of soil and clay holds the seeds safely until Mother Nature provides the right amount of moisture and warm temperatures for proper germination. Seed balls can be planted any time of year.
How to make Seed Balls...
Start out with some rich organic soil, some plain ol' air-dry clay, and Honeybee Wildflower Seeds.
Form all the seed balls and lay out on wax paper to dry. Allow to dry at room temperature for at least 24-48 hours. Store the seed balls in a paper or cloth bag in a cool, dry location until ready to toss. Do NOT place in plastic bags...the seeds will suffocate and not germinate.
To use: Toss the seed balls about 1 foot apart. Let Mother Nature take over by providing water and sunshine. Sit back and enjoy the beautiful flowers!
Each package has 20 hand-rolled seed balls ready for tossing. Each ball covers about 1 square foot. You can find them here...Honeybee Wildflower Seed Balls. Seed Balls can be planted anytime of year, so toss some now to enjoy a bright wildflower spring!
Until next time...Happy Planting!
