Hi, there! Did you know that by growing Seedles, you’ve joined the movement to grow a million flowers? That’s why they’re good news disguised as a gardening product. They rock...and roll! Plus they help you become a planet superhero because they grow bee food.
Seedles are rainbow bright balls of seed, compost, and clay. We’ve done the heavy lifting by designing Seedles to practically grow themselves and improve soil while they're at it. They add fun and vibrant colors to your neighborhood while benefitting local pollinators. All you have to do is throw them and grow them.
Wildflower Seedles contain a mix of some of these wildflowers: White Yarrow, Black Eyed Susan, California Poppy, Common Milkweeds, Goldenrod, Columbine, Purple Echinacea, and Wild Bergamot.
Thyme Bombs are culinary herb Seedles to create your own indoor or outdoor kitchen garden. The rainbow set contains Thyme, Oregano, Dill, Parsley, Mint, Basil, and Chives. YUM!
A Seedle will eventually sprout if you just throw it in a sunny, non-weedy environment. For best results we recommend finding a sunny spot that gets 4-6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Then push them halfway into the soil, so the top half is out of the soil, but the bottom half is nicely nestled into it’s fertile surroundings. We then recommend watering them daily until they are 4” tall, then you can water once a week. The best times to plant wildflower Seedles are just after the final winter frost (early spring) or in the late fall at least 10 weeks before the first frost.
Color Coating: The color coating is all food grade except for the color pigments, which are still earth-based oxidized pigments. This means no icky stuff for the kids or the environment.
Caution: When children play with Seedles, provide supervision as clay, compost, and earth based pigments should not be inhaled or ingested. Never throw Seedles in wild, sensitive, protected, or fragile habitats. We took great care to choose regionally appropriate seed mixes so please grow your Seedles in your region only. Respect other people’s property and landscaped yards.
Our Commitment to the Environment
As new parents, we want to make this planet a better place for our children and yours. The planet and our social impact are at the forefront of our operational decisions.
Our “plastic” bags and stickers are biodegradable and come from local Bay Area companies. We have used recyclable and waste stream materials as much as possible from our package stuffing and printing paper to the wood required for the Seedle making machine. Thank you for doing your part by composting or recycling the materials in your package.
