Seedles can be grown in pots, containers and indoors as long as the spot you put them in gets at least 4 hours of direct sunlight each day. These flowers brighten your day, and in turn they need a little brightness themselves to grow healthy and strong. This could be a sunny South or West facing window, balcony, or patio.
We highly recommend you order the Wildflower Seedles that are native to your region. You can view our regional map here which shows the six different regions we make wildflower seed bombs for.
It is possible, although unlikely that if you plant for example the Northeast Region wildflower seedles in a state in the Southeast region some of the flowers could be considered invasive. So we recommend ordering the variety that corresponds with the area of the map you live in.
Great question! You can just "throw them and grow them" if you're not super concerned about when, and how they will grow. 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 prepared soil, so the top half is out of the soil, but the bottom half is nicely nestled into its 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.
The paint we make is homemade, non-toxic and made with earth-based pigments that biodegrade and could be considered the same as sand. We couldn't find anything like this on the market so we had to create it ourselves. Other ingredients included are found commonly in a food pantry around the home and are 100% safe for your kids and your soil.
Seedles last 1-2 years when kept in a cool, dry, dark location. Planting in the spring (after risk of frost) is a great way to break the winter blues, and they are wonderful Christmas gifts as they offer hope during the cold months.
