Seedles Wildflower Seed Bomb Review
Seedles sent me a make your own seed ball kit and northwest wildflower seedballs. The thing I LOVE about them, is you chose your premade wildflower seed balls based on your area. How cool is that? These are adorable!! You can check out their region map here. If there is a blend that isn't perfect, they will even make one for you!
Here is a kit that includes everything in the make your own seedball kit. This neat kit includes compost, powdered clay, native wildflower seeds. The included supplies are enough to make 50-75 seed bombs. We plan on sending these to school for the kids to make and take home. That will be so fun.
We plan on throwing premade seed balls into abandoned lots on our walks in spring. Once we do that, my hope is that we will have pictures to update this post.
