Seed bomb success
« on: June 12, 2010, 07:25:26 PM »
I bombed a bit of spare ground near where i live last spring - sadly the weedkillers wiped out sunflowers , cornflower and poppies , but thats the chance you take .
The good news is the field poppies got a grip this spring and are blooming fab !
Personally i think autumn sown bombs have more chance of a good show the next year as there is more moisture later in the year to get them going.

Were these beautiful poppies via seed bombing? 

Well done - they look superb.

You inspired me!  I sowed corn poppies along my route to work this morning.  Just loose, not seed bombs, but with any luck some will grab hold.

Nice! Well done  :D

How many seedbombs did it take to get this amount of flowers? And what's your recipe?

Surprisingly there are actually very few plants in this picture - they have just grown HUGE for some reason .
personally i think seedbombs are best sown in the autumn as they get a better start if they stay damp until they get started , spring can often have very dry spells .
Its just a mix of dried clay soil ground up with compost and seeds , theres no exact science - plants just get on with it .
You will get much better results if you can cast and rake seeds in .

Hi Buddleiabill, I've said before poppies are my most favourite flowers, Our troop has just  returned from London after  doing a capital makeover for the Orange media launch of the "Do Some Good" apps. Keep an eye out for daybreak tv Thurs or Fri am. I didn't know who daybreak or Cordelia was until I met her yesterday. Thanks for your support. Bob

Looks amazing. Obviously a few years ago now though! Any chance there have been any self seeding going on? Any more pictures to show off?

whilst walking through the woods this morning I spotted some wild cyclamen growing under a tree,  I am going to seed the nearby area so hopefully next year there will be plenty of wild flowers around the woods :)
