A Pretend Gardener's Wishes

I've talked before about what a terrible gardener I am, so this video appealed to me.

Here's a pdf from a different source with more info on seed balls and how to use them. Apparently seed balls are a good way to ensure that plants grow (and they're a fun project for kids, too), because the clay prevents birds or rodents from eating the seeds. The seeds will wait until conditions are right (rain?) to germinate. Here's a bit on the history of seed balls. 

Some seed balls that have been planted in a bit of guerilla gardening.

And the results (I think this is the same area)

Looks like fun! Just remember (as mentioned in some of the posts above) to be careful what you plant (no invasive species).
