Practice random acts of gardening with our new seed bombs! We made them using a mix of wildflowers native to the Midwest. Five seed bombs are packed into each screenprinted muslin bag. These are available at Outside, 16 East 12th St. in OTR.
Here are the raw materials we used to make the seed bombs. On the right is the wildflower seed mixture, which includes Queen Anne’s Lace, Pot Marigold, Cornflower, Godetia, Farewell-to-Spring, Plains Coreopsis, Sulphur Cosmos, Wild Cosmos, Chinese Forget-Me-Not, Wild Larkspur, California Poppy, Indian Blanket, Globe Gilia, Baby’s Breath, Wild Annual Sunflower, Rose Mallow, Baby Snapdragon, Scarlet Flax, Annual Lupine, Four O’Clock, Baby Blue Eyes, Red Poppy, and None-so-Pretty:
The seed bombs dried for a couple of days before we packed them into their little pouches:
We love making things that people hang on their walls, but we also believe in making tools for better living. Like the “While You Were Out” sign you can use to communicate with shop owners, these seed bombs are something to use to make your microcosm a better place to live.
We’re so excited that Outside is now carrying our work, joining the ranks of other fine area shops that support our efforts: Contemporary Arts Center gift shop downtown, MiCA 12/v and Park+Vine in Over-the-Rhine, MiCA in O’Bryonville, and NVISION in Northside.
