Flowers & Gardens: Seed Bombs

With any luck, this year it will be March showers that bring May flowers. We’re on our fourth day of rain in Boston. At some point it will stop raining and warm up. Julie Baine, owner of Pod in Brookline Village sent over this fun and easy garden solution, the Seed Bomb ($7.50). Each muslin pouch contains five compressed balls of soil and compost that have been impregnated with East Coast wildflower seeds. Simply chuck it into a field, abandoned construction site, barren hill. That’s my kind of gardening.
