Seed Bombs in Portland, OR

Pacific Northwest Seed Bombs by VisuaLingual

Our Pacific Northwest seed bombs are now available at Pistils Nursery, located at 3811 N. Mississippi Ave. in Portland, OR and dedicated to “country living in the city.” The store offers supplies for worm composting, chicken keeping, vegetable growing, and now guerrilla gardening!

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 seed mixture includes Annual Lupine, Baby Blue Eyes, Baby’s Breath, Baby Snapdragon, Black-Eyed Susan, Blue Flax, California Poppy, Candytuft, Chinese Houses, Cornflower, Dame’s Rocket, Evening Primrose, Farewell-to-Spring, Foxglove, Godetia, Lance-Leaf Coreopsis, Mountain Phlox, None-So-Pretty, Plains Coreopsis, Perennial Gaillardia, Red Poppy, Rocket Larkspur, Scarlet Flax, Shasta Daisy, Siberian Wallflower, Sweet Alyssum, Sweet William, White Yarrow, and Wild Columbine. These wildflowers were chosen because they’re native to the Pacific Northwest, 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 Pacific Northwest seed bombs, and tons of other handmade goodies, are also available in the VisuaLingual online shop.

  1. I would like to get in touch with someone regarding purchasing your seed bombs wholesale. I am the retail sales manager at the Kingman Museum of Natural History located in Battle Creek, Michigan.

    I have been hired to re-invent our gift shop and would like to add environmentally friendly products that go along with our mission statement as a natural history museum.

    You product would be one of many unique products we will carry that would turn our gift shop into a “destination” of its own.

    Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

  2. I absolutely LOVE this idea, please find a distributor in England, I love the idea of these as favours..

  3. Thanks so much, Sarah! I don’t think it’s easy to deal with the agricultural export regulations in order to do this, but we’re looking into it.
