Seed Bombs

Now is the time to start preparing your seed bombs. Take 2 parts of compost and 1 part of clay and your chosen seeds. I would choose a mix of water wise, colourful shrubs and ground covers to brighten up ugly areas that you often drive past. Mix in some water and and form into bombs. Dry slowly, out of the sun and start planning your bombing sites. I would wait until after the first rains before distributing them. Enjoy the fruit of your labour when they germinate and ultimately when they flower. They will be a joy to birds, bees and fellow travellers.
