What Are Garden Seed Bombs?
A garden seed bomb is compost ball or paper ball that is mixed with seeds. Garden seed bombs can be placed in the garden or into a plant pot with soil. Once the seeds begin to germinate and grow the seed bomb will slowly break apart and the seeds can continue to grow.

How To Make Seed Bombs With Paper
Cut each piece of paper into about 1-inch squares and put them into a small dish. Keep each paper colour in its own dish.
Fill each dish with water just until the paper is covered. Soak the paper for about 20 minutes.
Take one of the bowls of paper and wring it out about halfway.
Put it in the food processor and pulse the paper into a pulp.
Repeat this with all the paper colours and put the pulp back into each of their bowls.
Sprinkle some seeds into each bowl of paper, mix them in a little, and press the pulp and seeds into balls.
If the pulp is a little dry, put a few sprinkles of water on the pulp. It will help it to hold its shape better.
Set the seed balls on a sheet pan to dry overnight.
Plant your homemade seed bombs in your garden or anywhere you want flowers to grow. Making flower bombs is super easy and simple and it’s a fun project you can make with the kids or on your own!!
