Yay, our East Coast seed bombs are now available at Still Life Mercantile, located at 3 Mill Hill Rd. in scenic Woodstock, NY, a store which focuses on affordable, Modern handcrafted items and vintage design from the mid-20th century.
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 seed 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, 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.
Here in San Diego, I made a visit to Anthropology just to pick up a couple as gifts for my cousin who graduated. She loves to garden and was very excited about them!
That’s awesome! We’re actually in the middle of production for the holiday season, and we’re working on a couple of new varieties that will be more indoor-friendly [not an issue in San Diego, but it is in most parts of the US].
