Hassle-free native gardening
Our seed bombs arrive to you already cold stratified and already wrapped with enriched potting soil, clay and compost. To be planted in the spring, most northern native plants must undergo a cold treatment of at least 30 days under certain conditions (temperature, moisture, etc.). Good news, we've already done this work for you!
This treatment reproduces the winter conditions and helps deactivate the chemical and physical barriers that delay the germination of the seeds. These protections are a natural adaptation of northern plants, which prevents them from germinating prematurely during a fall or winter thaw followed by a frost. Without cold stratification, germination rates can be very low (3-4%) or even nil if the seeds are older. The clay and potting soil envelope of our seed bombs will allow the seeds to germinate without being eaten by birds or rodents.
Lasclay seed bombs are classified in 6 themes:
- Ripararian and wet areas
- Hummingbirds & pollinators
- 1 bomb = 1 3/4" x 4" stick, divisible in 4 cells each containing seeds. This enables you to cover up to 4 square feet per bomb.
- About 12 to 24 cold-stratified seeds per stick, or 3-6 per cell.
- Sowing: In May, June or July, drop the seed bombs on the surface and cover lightly with potting soil. Make sure the seeds always stay moist during the early stages.
