Traditionally used to keep birds from eating their corn seed, Native Americans would roll the seeds in clay. Seed balls are a method of growing seeds by encasing them in a mixture of clay and compost. This protects the seeds from drying out in the sun, getting eaten by birds, or blowing away in the wind. SeedBallz has reinvented this tradition with a proven formula of all-natural ingredients to create SeedBallz. Each of the ballz is loaded with seeds that germinate inside the ball with watering.
Inspired by soil scientist Masanobu Fukuoka, author of “The One –Straw Revolution”, SeedBallz began mixing a special blend of rich organic humus, a whole packet of seeds and clay to offer the gardener a new way to grow wildflowers and herbs. They then partnered with developmentally disabled workers and created an innovative way to roll and grow clusters of flowers from each round ball. It was a perfect match. They began rolling seedballs in Arizona and it was quickly apparent that it was fun and therapeutic!!! It didn’t take long for these companies to grow together and blossom into a “Success Story”.
- DO NOT bury SeedBallz.
- Do not break up the SeedBallz, they are more successful if they are kept intact.
- Place in FULL sun.
- Keep SeedBallz moist until sprouts begin to grow.
- If placed into pots the flowers will flourish, be smaller in size and floral display time is shorter.
Store SeedBallz in a cool, dry place.
