    will this work for all types of seeds or just wildflower seeds?

      Good advise, Terri and Em. Will not cluster any vegetable seeds in my seed bombs, only flowers. Thank you for your responses.

    Would food coloring have any impact on the seeds? It would be fun to have pink or red hearts, or other colorful pieces.

    Have you tested them to see how long it takes for the clay to dissolve?

    This is definitely ON my ToDo list. I have a jar full of seeds(??) that I inherited when my mom passed away. No idea What kind of flowers these will become, but that is the pleasure of doing the Seed Bombs. My mom was always collecting flower plants with beautiful blooms, I doubt I will be disappointed no matter What flowers I eventually get.
