Seed Bombs in Charlotte

East Coast Seed Bombs by VisuaLingual

Good morning, Charlotte, NC! Estate, one of the shops located within Post & Gray, is now carrying our East Coast seed bombs. Located in the Historic Southend district of Charlotte, Post & Gray features over 35 merchants housed within a large warehouse space.

We make our seed bombs by hand in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, using a mix of bird-, bee- and butterfly-friendly wildflowers native to the East Coast. Five gumball-sized seed bombs are packed into each screenprinted muslin bag, ready for gift-giving.

The bird-, bee- and butterfly-friendly wildflower mixture includes Baby Blue Eyes, Baby’s Breath, Black Eye Susan, Blue Flax, California Poppy, Cornflower, Gloriosa Daisy, Lance-Leaf Coreopsis, Mexican Hat, None-so Pretty, Ox-Eye Daisy, Perennial Gaillardia, Perennial Lupine, Plains Coreopsis, Purple Coneflower, Red Poppy, Rose Mallow, Scarlet Flax, Shasta Daisy, Siberian Wallflower, Sulphur Cosmos, Sweet William, Wild Annual Sunflower, Wild Cosmos, and Wild Larkspur. These wildflowers were chosen because they’re native to the East Coast, but many are actually native to much of North America.

Since their introduction last Spring, our seed bombs have been featured in Vogue, House Beautiful, ReadyMade, Lonny Magazine, and Woman’s Day, among other publications.

Our East Coast seed bombs, and tons of other handmade goodies, are also available in the VisuaLingual online shop.

  1. Hi!. I purchased several bags of seed bombs at Anthropologie in Greensboro, NC. I think…I like them…but there were no instructions for use in the little bags. Should they be broken and scattered, planted as is… or??????
    Clever concept, neat packages, but I do need to know just what to do with them so that I can enjoy them.
    Please help! Many thanks, KY

  2. Hi, Kathie. Thanks so much for buying our seed bombs! All you have to do it throw them [as if you’re bombing an area]. The little balls will break apart on impact, and then the rain will disintegrate them further. Red clay is rich in minerals, and the worm castings are a natural fertilizer — both enrich the soil around the seeds, helping the wildflowers grow. It’s an efficient little system!
