Hope it went well! Agree with sawdust - try egg boxes as these should mostly be biodegradable. Would just need to find a way of compacting them - some sort of biodegradeable string/ribbon maybe?

You can also get your seed and soil mix together in an organic cotton stocking and then twist the stocking at several points to separate out the seeds whilst still keeping it all close together Smiley

When I got married I actually made hundreds of these using shredded paper pulp as the shell.

What you do is soaking unbleached or recycled paper in water over night. Using a blender grind it up and squeeze out the water. Sprinkle your seeds of choice inside and make a ball out of it. You can package them once dried.

Clay, modelling clay pressed flat, with compost/soil and seed in centre. Finally roll into a ball
