27 Apr How to Make Your Own Seed Bombs
Today marks the start of National Gardening week, so we are rounding up the best gardening essentials available at Anglia Square, starting with how to make your own seed bombs.
Seed bombs bring some spontaneity to your garden and require very little work, they practically grow themselves! April – June is the perfect time to make and plant seed bombs, to plant – simply throw your seed bomb and let the soil, sun and rain do all the work.
Not only do they look good, wildflowers also create a rich environment for pollinators, turning your garden into an oasis for butterflies and bees! Head to QD at Anglia Square for all your gardening supplies and start growing your own thriving oasis right outside your doorstep.
You will need:
Wildflower seeds (try wildlife mixture seeds from QD)
In a mixing bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon of seeds with 1 cup of compost and 1 cup of clay.
Gradually add in water, mixing it all until everything is combined and sticks together.
Roll the mixture into firm balls, around 2cm diameter, with your hands.
Leave out to dry in a sunny spot.
Once dry, simply throw them into bare spots in your garden and wait for the magic to happen!
