Making Wildflower Seedbombs

At this time of year, all but one of the wildflower beds in Cuthill Park have been cut back.

From the remaining bed (deliberately left to provide a source of nectar for our insect friends) we have gathered some of the seeds to make seedbombs.

It's very easy and makes an unusual gift.

Mix together:
1 part non-invasive wildflower seeds
3 parts peat-free compost
3 parts bentonite-based cat litter
2 parts water

Mixture should resemble brownie dough and have a firm consistency

Form into small balls, somewhere between the size of a marble and a golf ball

Leave to dry

Store in a cool, dark place

They will be ready to throw in the spring.
