Kabloom make fun and innovative products that also happen to be eco-friendly. Designed for interaction and inspired by our relationship with nature in the urban environment. Seedboms were designed particularly to get people outside and create nature in their cities. But of course they can be used anywhere!
Seedboms are the friendly bombs that grow. Transform unloved spaces with a blast of life and colour! Each seedbom is filled with an explosive mix of organic peat-free compost and wildflower or herb seeds. They are easy to use. You don't need to be a gardener and there's no need to actually plant them. Seedboms split upon impact with the ground and grow where they land.
A potent symbol of war transformed into a symbol for peace.
Made with a starch and natural fibre based PaperFoam shell, organic peat-free compost, non-GMO seeds & 100% recycled and recyclable glue free cardboard packaging. Seedboms biodegrade into the environment leaving only plants behind.
Seedboms are approximately 5.5cm in diameter and 8cm high.
How to use
Shake your Seedbom to disperse the seeds inside the shell.
Soak your Seedbom. Simply pull out the pin stopper and slowly pour in water until it has soaked through, goes soft and changes colour from light to dark. Do not over soak or over water, this can damage the seeds/seedlings and will inhibit growth.
Throw your seedbom. When choosing the perfect growing site, look for bare open ground with little or no weeds, weeds will compete with the seedlings and stop them from establishing into strong and healthy plants. Seedboms can also be grown in planters, pots or window boxes. Simply soak as normal and place on top of well drained soil, then split open by hand to allow seedlings to grow out.
Give your Seedbom light. Make sure your seedbom is getting enough natural light in its location.
Give them heat. Ensure you use your seedboms during the seasons specified on the packaging to give them the best chance of growing. Although we cannot guarantee heat during these seasons these are the growing seasons specified by the suppliers and should stimulate healthy growth.
Avoid frost. Many wildflowers will lay dormant for weeks or months before sprouting into action when the time is right. Your Seedbom may look like it's dying off after initial growth, that is normal. Don't throw it out just yet, there could be wildflowers waiting to pop up the following spring once given a chance
Seedboms like to be kept damp, try not to let them dry out and don't over-water and drown the seedlings. A good rule of thumb is damp to the touch but not soaking wet.
Seedboms like to be warm, not too hot, the warmth from the sun is ideal. Too hot and the Seedbom will dry out and there is a danger of the seedlings dying. Too cold and the seeds may not germinate at all.
Seedboms are designed to be used from around April till June however depending on the variety you can use grow them as early as March and as late as October (flower the following year) in some cases.
All instructions can be found on the inside of the Seedbom packaging sleeve.
