Blooms Away!

Help the grass stay greener on the other side of abandoned fences with a beautiful new concept in urban landscaping called "guerrilla gardening." Simply throw and grow! Choose from six pouches packed with five ready-to-grow seed balls, each suitable for one U.S. region. Each reusable muslin pouch holds five seed balls made from clay and worm castings to enrich depleted soil.

Originally created as a simple remedy for reviving vacant lots in run-down areas of Cincinnati, Seed Bombs are ideal for impromptu gardening during spring, summer, or early fall. Try your hand at guerrilla gardening or give these as a thoughtful gift that benefits the whole community. Made in Ohio.

            my original order was not included in shipment -- replacements were promptly made without any further costs. Great Service. It's winter here in Wyoming (3 degrees this a.m.) so they aren't planted as yet. Hopefully, they'll bloom beautifully this summer.

            They are seeds. They are made to grow. I can hardly wait to have a bunch of different flowers in my garden this spring.

                  Really need better directions in regard to planting etc. I am not sure how deep to plant or how much space they need to grow.

                  There was a mix-up in the order. Kudos to Jesse for righting matters and having the order arrive before Christmas! Thank you and special thanks to Jesse (spoken to on 12/22/11 at 2:19 PM EST).

                    Comments about Wildflower Seed Bombs - Set of 2:

                    I gave this as part of a larger gift. The bombs have not yet been "tossed", so I can't speak to the flowering stage. I was disappointed in the packaging, which was kind of supposed to be the best part for the presentation. The bombs came in a burlapish bag, but was not colorful as shown on this site. The bag was in a plastic bag that wasn't sealed at the top, so a lot of dirt/dust, whatever, got spread around. In the end, if the flowers bloom, it will be a success...it's December now, so it's too early to tell

                    My mom always talked about having a house with a lot of land and planting wildflowers in a patch of it. This was the perfect Christmas gift for her. She LOVED it! She also knew a lot of the flowers and was ecstatic about what was included.
