Guerrilla Gardening with  Clay-Based Seed  Pellets

 

In the 1970s, a Green Guerrilla group in the New York area initialized the idea of guerilla gardening as a new form of protest. They used safe made small balls containing a mixture of mud, clay and plant or flower seeds, which then were dried and finally spread into parks, into front gardens and otherwise inaccessible places.            It is known that cultivation trials with barley and rice in the difficult situation after the end of World War II        in Japan have been made, which were probably precursors of this 'guerrilla gardening' movement which followed.

 

In recent years, a market niche has emerged that commercially utilizes the concept of guerrilla gardening with so-called seed bombs or seed balls, often made from mixtures of cat litter, seeds, clay and other materials used both for planting in flower pots or in the garden, with a quality not always satisfying but finally something always germinates and grows - often used to annoy the neighbors or communities and bring flowers and growth there where they may not be wanted ...

The seed seed pellets from instant seed, based on pure and high-quality clay recipes, are the first to offer coated seed that can be used like a seed bomb without having to be packed voluminously into a ball or seed bomb. These seed-clay pellets, which have been applied for patent-pending concerning professional use, are easy to use as the more efficient seed-bomb technique because of their high specific weight, 'flying characteristics' and optimal seed and growth conditions due to the clay recipe with minimum volume and significantly increased sowing efficiency ...
