October Garden Ideas:
NATIVE SEED BOMBS
from the Wild Seed Project
Perfect for an area needing some re-wilding and an opportunity to talk about native plants, the ecosystem, seeds, soil, and more.
According to the folks at the Wild Seed Project, from now until early spring is the best time for seed bomb creation and dispersal: "The seeds of many northern species need to experience a winter cold period before the seeds will germinate. Sowing the seeds during the cold and wet time of year will give these seeds the best chance to work their way into a soil niche and provide the cold stratification they need for germination." All you need is some clay, compost, water, and native seeds! Click here to learn more from the Wild Seed Project.
Fall is also the perfect time for saving seeds, and tomato seeds are super easy and fun to save.
