The idea of a Garden Bomb is to encourage the growth of beneficial plants, when conditions are ideal, so when you see an area you would like to naturalize, you throw a Garden Bomb. The rain will eventually melt away the clay, and nutrient rich compost and soil are right there ready to nurture the seeds within as they grow.
Coating the seed-and-compost-bundles in clay helps to weigh them down, preventing critters from eating the seeds. The heavier clay balls also stop the wind from moving seeds around. This was helpful in the days where growing things meant eating or not eating.
You can also plant a Garden Bomb into a pot or directly into your garden bed, just be sure to water generously at first, and when you see the seedlings start to come up, gently space them out as needed once their second set of leaves emerge.
Seed Bombs also have a great "Guerilla Gardening" history too, in the 70's and 80's eco-activists would prepare seed bombs and pitch them into areas that needed "greenification".
I wanted to create a product that helped my brand go full circle when it comes to supporting the critters that visits our backyards. Charlotte's Birdseed Feeders help birds make it through the winter when food sources are scarce, Anti-Collision Window Clings help protect birds from fatal window strikes during spring and fall migration, and now Garden Bombs help grow the flowers and plants that attract and feed birds and all kinds of pollinators, or your own dinner plate as with the salad Bomb.
Charlotte’s Birdseed started just after Laura and Cam Meuckon’s wedding in 2010. Laura made all-natural birdseed ornaments for their wedding favours, and fell in love with the idea of creating something good for nature, that looked lovely too. More than ten years later and Charlotte’s Birdseed is still at it and adding more to the little business bit by bit. The solid birdfeeders are like hard granola bar treats for birds. The entire feeder is consumable, even the natural twines and yarns used to hang them up can be left outside once the seed is eaten - it will be used for nesting material in spring!
