Make these seed spheres and toss them into your garden bed.

Article - Sphere@1x
Seed spheres are round balls of earth and compost with seeds inside them. Sometimes people make them to throw into barren areas such as roadsides, but here they’re made as a bit of fun and can be used in a wilder area of the garden.

Equipments

What to do

  • 1. In a bucket, mix 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of compost, 1 cup of water.

  • 2. Knead with your hands (get muddy).

  • 3. Add the seeds you are using – about 2 tablespoons of seeds is ideal for this amount of mud and flour.

  • 4. Add more flour if needed until the mixture feels like bread dough or playdough.

  • 5. Pinch off lumps or use the old spoons to scoop out teaspoons of the mix.

  • 6. Roll them in the palms of your hands into walnut-sized balls.

  • 7. Let them dry for a little while in the sunshine, or have fun throwing them into a wild area of your garden where you would like the mixture of seeds you have selected to grow.

  • 8. Water well.

  • Tip: Seed spheres can be packaged and sold as a fundraiser. To do this, let them dry in the sun until they are quite hard – the seeds will remain dormant as long as they are dry.
