Seedboms are the friendly bombs that grow. Guerrilla Gardening grenades filled with flower power potential. Join forces with nature to transform unloved spaces with a blast of life and colour! Filled with an explosive mix of organic peat-free compost and wildflower or herb seeds. Weapons of choice for Guerrilla Gardeners. Easy to use. You don’t need to be a gardener and there‘s no need to plant them. Seedboms split open upon impact with the ground and grow where they land. Help sustain bee, butterfly and other important insect populations by growing nectar rich wildflowers. A potent symbol of war transformed into a symbol of peace!
When watering ensure the Seedbom is gently soaked all the way through, you can tell it’s really soaked when the biobased shell starts to really soften (think of cooked pasta). If your Seedbom is not soaked through there is a good chance it won’t break open effectively.
Seedboms like to be kept damp, try not to let them dry out and don’t over-water and drown the seedlings. A good rule of thumb is damp to the touch but not soaking wet.
Seedboms like to be warm, not too hot, the warmth from the sun is ideal. Too hot and the Seedbom will dry out and there is a danger of the seedlings dying. Too cold and the seeds may not germinate at all.
When choosing the perfect growing site, look for bare open ground with little or no weeds, weeds will compete with the seedlings and stop them from establishing into strong and healthy plants.
Seedboms can also be grown in planters, pots or window boxes. Simply soak as normal and place on top of well drained soil, then split open by hand to allow seedlings to grow out.
Seedboms are made from a 100% compostable bio-based shell containing organic peat-free compost, and wildflower seeds. Their packaging is 100% biodegradable, recyclable, FSC accredited and glue-free.
Seedboms are created in the UK (their shell casings are made in the Netherlands. All other materials are sourced in the UK).
