Seed Bombs

That's right - Seed Bombs. Seems a much smarter idea than 'smart bombs'. Just purchase and chuck. Mother Nature handles the rest. We have to hand it to the crew at Visual Lingual for a making these fun little hand grenades of flowers. Each 'bomb' contains a "wildflower seed mixture, which includes Queen Anne’s Lace, Pot Marigold, Cornflower, Godetia, Farewell-to-Spring, Plains Coreopsis, Sulphur Cosmos, Wild Cosmos, Chinese Forget-Me-Not, Wild Larkspur, California Poppy, Indian Blanket, Globe Gilia, Baby’s Breath, Wild Annual Sunflower, Rose Mallow, Baby Snapdragon, Scarlet Flax, Annual Lupine, Four O’Clock, Baby Blue Eyes, Red Poppy, and None-so-Pretty." You can pick up a hand screened pack of five seed bombs at Outside in downtown Cincinnati, Contemporary Arts Center gift shop downtown, MiCA 12/v and Park+Vine in Over-the-Rhine, MiCA in O’Bryonville, NVISION in the funky Northside, and now Anthropologie. Or you can order them online straight from Visual Lingual themselves.

We might be picking up some of these to throw into the forest here at the studio!


  1. Thanks so much for the shout-out! One note, though -- not every store that carries our work sells seed bombs. In Cincinnati, you can find them at Outside and Park+Vine. Next Saturday, 17 Apr, we'll have a booth at the Crafty Supermarket in Clifton, and we'll have them there as well.
