Our Midwest seed bombs are now available at the Bureau of Urban Living in Detroit. It’s always so cool when a store in a place we know decides to carry our work! If you’re curious about what’s going on in Detroit these days, check out this NYT article about area entrepreneurs, written in early 2010, which mentions the store owners.
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 Midwest. Five gumball-sized seed bombs are packed into each little screenprinted muslin pouch, ready for gift-giving.
The wildflower mixture includes Upland White Aster, Prairie Aster, Cornflower, Siberian Wallflower, Shasta Daisy, Lance-Leaf Coreopsis, Plains Coreopsis, Sulphur Cosmos, Wild Cosmos, Sweet William, Purple Coneflower, California Poppy, Perennial Gaillardia, Indian Blanket, Baby’s Breath, Wild Annual Sunflower, Dwarf Sunflower, Dame’s Rocket, Candytuft, Blue Flax, Scarlet Flax, Perennial Lupine, Russell Lupine, Baby Blue Eyes, Evening Primrose, Red Poppy, Mexican Hat, Prairie Coneflower, Black-Eyed Susan, Gloriosa Daisy, and Sweet Coneflower. These wildflowers were chosen because they’re native to the East Coast, but many are actually native to much of North America.
Our Midwest seed bombs, and tons of other handmade goodies, are also available in the VisuaLingual online shop.
