Make Your Own Seed Bombs
Seed bombing is a fun way to broadcast seeds into areas of your yard that need some extra color. The paper encasing keeps the seeds moist, creating a perfect environment for germination. These little gems will change the way you garden! What you will need: junk mail straight from the shredder (limit your choices to the non-glossy variety); water; immersion blender; wildflower seeds specific to your region.
Start by shredding your junk mail or tearing it into small pieces.
Soak Your Mail!
Soak the paper in a bowl of warm water to soften.
Blend with an immersion blender until the shreds become a paper pulp.
Strain the pulp in a sieve to remove excess water.
Roll Into Balls
Sprinkle your seeds into the pulp and mix well. Roll into balls and allow to dry.
Before long, your bombs will yield beautiful wildflowers.
