This spring, stop and smell the flowers with do it yourself Wildflower Seed Bombs
Spring in Texas is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Wildflowers are everywhere and bluebonnet pictures are an annual tradition.
While I love looking at the wildflowers as I drive, I also wanted to enjoy some a little bit closer to me. It was easy to plant plenty of wildflowers by making do-it-yourself wildflower seed bombs.
Wildflower Seed Bombs
- air dry clay
- potting soil
- wildflower seeds
You’ll need a ratio of 3 parts clay to 1 part soil and 1 part seeds.
Knead the clay and roll it out into a circle. Place the soil on top of the clay and then add the wildflower seeds on top. Fold the clay over and then begin kneading everything together.
If the clay is too stiff you can add some water to make it easier to work with.
Once all the supplies are kneaded together you can pinch off small pieces and roll them into balls. Allow the seed bombs to dry fully, which takes approximately 48 hours.
Once the wildflower seed bombs are dry you can use them! Toss them out into the yard or wherever it is that you want them to grow. It’s best to place them before a rainstorm so that they can become wet and begin sprouting.
The seed bombs also make a lovely spring gift! To gift mine, I wrapped them in burlap and twine.
Cut out squares of burlap and place one seed bomb in the center. Wrap the burlap around the seed bomb and tie it closed.
I picked some tiny flowers from my yard to add to the top of the burlap to give them a splash of color.
Wake up, ready to smell the flowers!
