What is a seed pill?

Seed bombs are currently used as one of the various means of sowing seeds by guerrilla gardeners. The “Seed Pill” is a new version of the seed bomb (a ball made of clay, compost and seeds). It combines the efficacy of the seed bomb with a cleaner, smaller and more discreet design. Enjoy!

  1. I thought of doing this last year when I got home to melbourne (after living in London for 6 years, and most of that with Richard Reynolds), and found a bottle of empty capsules in my bathroom.

    Do you add soil to the seed pill? And if so, what kind? And have you found a particular type of seed works best?

    While its now autumn here for me, I’m keen to give it a crack this spring so will be watching your progress with interest!

    • Hello Meike,

      To answer your question, I dry the soil out, to make sure that it doesn’t melt the capsule, then mix seeds into it, fill each capsule and voila! I use different seeds depending on what purpose I want to achieve. For something that will appear quickly, I use radish or mustard seeds, but for a bit more colour I’ll use wildflower seeds. What I often do is just mix the two and see what happens! Good luck!

  2. Hi Guys,

    I love this web site. I’ve been a guerilla gardener and seed bomber since the days of ‘Dig’ on Ch4, way back in the days.

    I’d love to know what your recipes are and I can disseminate them through email and twitter.

    Have you got a twitter page because if I’d know about this I would have come.

    Keep up the good work.

    Best,

    George.
