1. In a bowl, mix together the clay and compost until thoroughly combined. Children may prefer to use their hands to mix!
2. Slowly add drops of water, just enough to change the clay and compost mix into a modelling clay consistency, enabling you to manipulate it.
3. Divide the mixture into 3 equal parts.
4. Take one part and gently press the Rudi Radish seeds inside, rolling in your hands to make sure they are evenly spread. Separate and roll the Radish mixture into small tight balls, roughly the size of a 10 pence piece.
Do the same with the Boltardy Beetroot seeds and the Dwarf French Beans with the other two parts of compost and clay mix. The Bean balls should have 1 – 2 Beans inside each ball.
Tip: Make sure you keep the different seed bomb mixes apart from each other so you know which is which.
The balls can be thrown/planted straight away whilst still moist. Using the seed bombs straight after making them will encourage the seeds to germinate quicker.
Or, you can allow the balls to dry in a cool dark place for 24-48 hours. By drying the balls you can then save them until you are ready to plant them or wrap in paper to present as gifts to friends and family.
