Have you heard of seed bombs? Despite the menacing name, seed bombs are becoming a popular way to add beauty to a neglected space. Seed bombs are a type of compressed soil and seed mixture that makes it super easy to distribute seeds and bring flowers to unexpected spaces.
Guerrilla gardeners have been using seed bombs since the early '70s as a way of beautifying vacant city lots. Seed bombs are tossed over the fences of neglected public spaces with the goal of turning it into a flower oasis. Brings new meaning to the term "flower power" doesn't it?
While social activists still use seed bombs as a way to turn wasted spaces into food and flowers, they've also gone mainstream as a hot commodity. Used as wedding favors and gifts for gardeners, seed bombs have blown up (pun intended) in popularity the last few years.
