Typically a mixture of clay, compost and seeds, they canwear away with the rains or be jettisoned into any area other moisture. The compost where you want plants to in the middle gives the seeds grow, and will disappear into nutrients and a good initial the existing soil with the growing medium. They are rains, sending ilp wonderful especially good to use in surprises in the spring, areas that are hard to reach, This easy project takes or when a gardener is unable about an hour of mixing and to use conventional planting forming the balls, and then techniques. an hour of drying time.

Others have put the ingredients into a biodegradable rubber balloon filled with helium, in which the seeds fly to an unknown : location. Empty eggshells have also been used to contain the compost and seeds until thrown. For this week's project we focused on the classic clay and soil seed ball, using ingredients easily acquired and assembled. It took an evening to prepare, and several days later our stealth operation proceeded to the location chosen, and we engaged in our guerilla act. Next spring, keep your eyes open, observing any empty lots to see if they were our guerilla targets this fall. And, if you see a space that is -begging for a spring surgrise, i prepare your own combination, and see what emerges from your own "guerilla act."
