Seed Bomb Instructions:

Compost Mix
Red Clay Powder
Wildflower Seeds
Water

Mix together the soil and clay powder in 1:1 equal parts, add water slowly to form a cookie dough-like consistency. Lay it flat in your hand and add a small pinch of wildflower seeds. Roll into a ball, let dry outside for 12-24 hours, and plant when dry. Plant in an area you want wildflowers, that gets enough sunlight and rain.

Do not: Plant in someone else’s yard or property.

Fun Fact: Masanobu Fukuoka rediscovered and advanced the now popular clay seed ball in Japan.
