The baby was taking a longer nap than usual so I decided to whip up some paper seed balls. A friend and I did this last year around this time and they did very well. I have only used a mixture of herb seeds when making these balls, but I think I’m going to try a mixture of wildflowers or different perennials that work well together. They are fun to make, but very messy and goopy. I’m not sure where we got this ‘recipe’ from originally, but maybe it’s a fairly standard way of making seed balls/bombs with paper [?]. We also made these balls using coloured paper which looked very cool, and our kids loved helping out. Once the balls were finished we put them in pots with soil and watched them grow. Wish I had pictures of those, I loved the way they turned out. I haven’t done anything yet with the ones I made today.
I do want to try these using the red clay and compost method as well.
I smoothed them out and immediately removed the balls from the tray so they could dry completely. This time I plan on taking photos once they start to sprout.
