Seeds For Change

Seed bombs are a fun and simple way to “greenify” a space, with multiple benefits including aesthetic and ecological as well as a great activity for the whole family!

Words By Ellie McKenna.

Making seed bombs is a great way to provide bees (and other pollinator species like butterflies, moths, birds and even bats) with habitat in cities.

What you will need:

– Peat-free compost
– Clay
– Water
– SEEDS! (native to your area)


  1. Mix 1-1 ratio of compost to clay, adding water bit by bit until it is all mixed together.
  2. Take small portions and roll them into a ball.
  3. Using your finger, make a dip in the middle of the ball and put your chosen seeds inside.
  4. Roll back into a ball and set aside to dry!

It’s that simple! Why not see for yourself and do your bit for nature.
