Seed balls (seed bombs) are 1/2-inch balls of dried soil and seeds. Essentially, they are pre-planted seeds. They are great for no-till gardening and beautifying neglected landscapes. Sow by pressing the seed ball halfway into the surrounding soil. Plant in habitats in need of biodiversity. Non-GMO. Pesticide free.

A seed ball protects seeds from erosion, foraging, and harsh conditions. This protective property often results in higher but slower germination rates. Please be patient with your seed balls. Placed in the appropriate soil and climate, they will grow.
