Environmental Stocking Stuffer of the Week: Seed Bombs


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Our pal VisuaLingual’s Seed Bombs have been getting mad press lately, and it couldn’t have happened to a more better product. Maya and Michael have designed the bombs to make random acts of gardening a cinch.  They have chosen native seeds that are bird, bee, and butterfly friendly.

The seeds were chosen because they are native to the midwest, but they will work all over the U.S.A. They include:

Queen Anne’s Lace, Upland White Aster Aster, Prairie Aster, Pot
Marigold, Cornflower, Siberian Wallflower, Shasta Daisy, Godetia,
Farewell-to-Spring, Lance-Leaf Coreopsis, Plains Coreopsis, Sulphur
Cosmos, Wild Cosmos, Chinese Forget-Me-Not, Wild Larkspur, Sweet
William, Purple Coneflower, California Poppy, Perennial Gaillardia,
Indian Blanket, Globe Gilia, Baby’s Breath, Wild Annual Sunflower,
Dwarf Sunflower, Dame’s Rocket, Rose Mallow, Baby Snapdragon,
Candytuft, Scarlet Flax, Blue Flax, Perennial Lupine, Russell Lupine,
Annual Lupine, Four O’Clock, Baby Blue Eyes, Evening Primrose, Red
Poppy, Mexican Hat, Prairie Coneflower, Black-Eyed Susan, Gloriosa
Daisy, Sweet Coneflower, None-so-Pretty

The muslin bags were made in the USA and screenprinted by hand with the Midwest Seed Bombs design. Inside each pouch is the full list of the seeds included. Each filled pouch weighs approximately 4-4.5 ounces. When you’ve used up the seed bombs, reuse the pouch or frame it!
