Make your own seed bombs for the garden
You don't need a green thumb to grow beautiful flowers in your garden. All you need are a few seed bombs you can whip up yourself, and Mother Nature will take care of the rest.
- Colorful paper
- Wildflower seeds
- Paper shredder or scissors
- Fine mesh strainer
- Mini muffin tin
1. Shred the paper
Use a paper shredder or scissors to shred the paper into tiny pieces.
2. Make the pulp
Make a paper pulp by putting 4 sheets of shredded paper and 1 cup of water in a blender. Blend until a pulp forms.
3. Add the seeds
Transfer the paper pulp to a bowl and add in 1 packet of wildflower seeds. Stir until the seeds are completely mixed in with the paper.
4. Remove the water
Transfer the pulp mixture into a fine mesh strainer (if you don't have a strainer, you can use a paper towel). Press any excess water out of the pulp.
5. Make the seed bombs
Press the pulp mixture firmly into the mini muffin tin. Set the tray in a warm place to dry for 24-48 hours.
6. Plant your garden
After the seed bombs have dried, remove them from the muffin tin — they are ready to plant. Simply toss them in the backyard and let Mother Nature take care of the rest.
