Time to feed our earth some happy pills!

 

Hi all, spring is on the way and Ive started making seed bombs, I was originally just going them to give to the people planting on our farms and local postie, friends ext.

With just:

  • recycled paper or clay,
  • a seed compost,
  • a touch of fertiliser
  • a pinch of chilli powder to keep insects at bay
  • and no less than 6 seeds per bomb (a generous pinch really because I’m too lazy to count),

they are ready to throw out the window of your car as you drive, or throw in those ugly places you don’t want to mow or you feel needs a bit of greenery.

How about organising a kids day, making bombs and throwing them on selected land!

Rewillding With Seed Bombs

By using seed bombs we can accelerate the regeneration process exponentially. This is an excellent method for rewilding gullies, hard to access land and thick gorse.

Make Tree Lucerne Tagasaste balls. As the Tagasaste grows it fixes nitrogen and creates a fantastic nursery canopy. If the land is infested in gorse then the cover is already created.

Phase 2: Now for the native seed bombs. Just throw away. 

After a couple of years the natives burst through, the gorse or Tagasaste dies off and hey presto, a native forest no time. I’m thinking about building a trebuchet for this 🙂
