The flower seeds in the bomb have been hand-selected to grow native prairie wildflowers that produce delicious seed heads to attract and nourish wild songbirds - what better way to feed the birds then to grow their food from scratch?
This bomb could include any combination of the following seeds: Giant Hyssop, False Sunflower, Wild Bergamot, Narrowleaf Sunflower, Purple Prairie Clove.
This Garden Bomb is handmade by combining compost, soil, worm-castings, natural clay, and top quality seeds locally grown and hand-harvested by the team at Prairie Originals, a greenhouse / small farm dedicated to the perseveration and protection of prairie wildflowers and grasses. The clay coating on the outside of the seed bomb will slowly dissolve with rain, and wash away the clay coating, waking up the prairie seeds within to grow wildflowers that support wild songbirds.
Best planted before May 1 (if planted after, some seeds may come up next year).
This listing is for 1 Songbird Garden Seed Bomb which is wrapped in beautiful paper and colourful tissue and set inside a giftbox. Instructions are noted in a sticker on the back of the box.
