The world needs more flowers! Make a seed sphere and grow them anywhere. Plus, adding plants to a landscape reduces the chances for erosion in low-soil spots, attracts pollinators, and beautifies any area with wildflowers!
What you need:
• Air-dry clay
• Native wildflower seeds
• Fabric scrap and string (or a paper bag)
What you do:
1. Mold a small ball of clay about an inch and a half in diameter.
2. Flatten out your clay like a pizza until you have a round flat surface.
3. Take a pinch of soil and press it into the clay; you don’t need much.
4. Spray with a small amount of water until damp, but not soaking wet.
5. Take five to seven seeds and place them in the soil.
6. Fold your clay like a burrito, keeping all the soil and seeds inside. Continue to roll your clay until you’ve kneaded the soil and seeds into a ball.
7. Wrap your fabric around the ball and use the string to secure it. You can also place your seed sphere in a paper bag. This way, everything is biodegradable.
8. Allow your sphere twenty-four hours to dry.
9. Find a place that needs some wildflowers, and drop your seed spheres. You could also give a set of seed spheres as a gift!
