How to Make Seed Bombs

Gardening can be fun and exciting.  Personally, I’ve always been kind of jazzed by it, but my parents met at college – an Ag college.  And they’re both free spirits.  Sooo…my childhood experiences are kind of different than most peoples. 

While I think it’s exciting to know that the seeds that are sown are going to turn into tasty veggies, vivid flowers, and flavorful herbs and spices, some people need a little more instant gratification.  That’s where thesefun garden projects from Miracle Gro come in. 


Depending on what floats your boats, Miracle Gro’s The Gro Project has a series of super fun gardening projects.  They’ll teach you how to grow your own herbs, make seed bombs, plant a terrarium, even how to make a macramé plant holder.   We're gonna make seed bombs! 

How to Make Seed Bombs

Items needed:

• Wildflower seeds

• Dried clay

Miracle-Gro® Seed Starting Potting Mix

• Bucket

• Tray or cookie sheet

• Cheesecloth – optional

• Ribbon or string – optional

• Gardening gloves

• Water

• Miracle-Gro® Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food


Mix equal parts potting mix, clay and seeds in your bucket.

Grab a handful then roll into a small ball, about ¾” in diameter. Add water as needed, to help your mixture stick together. 

Place the balls on a tray and dry them in the sun for a few days. I have also placed them of the shelf above my clothes dryer to dry. 

Throw down on the ground! Get them off to a good start by feeding them Miracle-Gro® Shake ‘n Feed® Plant Food every three months.

Since you will probably have extras, why not pass these along to your friends?  Place them in a pretty paper bag, an organza bag, or wrap in cheesecloth and ribbon to make a pretty presentation.

    I love to garden flowers and vegetables both. And Miracle Grow is a long time family friend of mine too. I have never heard about these seed bombs. Honestly I thought what in the world are they. My 5 year old grandson loves to garden too and this is an idea that he really would like to do. thanks so much for your idea

    Recently at a funeral we were given wildflowers as the person who passed loved wildflowers. I think somthing like this would be great for a wedding if properly packaged and the couple had this interest! I am pretty non trad too :)
