Seed Balls

Making seed balls for wild flowers and grasses is a fun project for the whole family, and they may be more effective for germinating seeds where you want them than broadcasting seeds, which is more subject to the wind. Seed balls may be made anytime and cast about in the spring or fall. Here is the recipe:

            1 part seeds

            4 parts fine powered clay

            5 parts compost

Mix together until sticky enough to form small dime-sized balls. Place balls on baking sheet and let dry in the sun. Toss them out on bare ground before it is about to rain.
