Seed Sensations was born from a love of making, growing and giving.
We want to help you give a gift that creates environments that are abuzz with bees, edible plants, and flowers that warm the heart.
5 out of 5 stars Absolutely adore these beautiful seed bombs. Rachel went above and beyond to make sure they were delivered before my mother's birthday. I am so impressed with her work and highly recommend her to all. Thank you again Rachel. I truly appreciate it 🙂
Hi I'm Rachel, the face behind Seed Sensations.
I created Seed Sensations because I love gardening and the good feelings it brings as well as the feeling I get when I give a loved one a gift and see the smile on their face when they find something special just for them.
Creating beautiful seed bombs brings it all together for me and I hope you get the same sensation!
I approached Rachel about a custom order for some memory boxes I was making, for parents that lose their baby through premature labour, or still birth.I was looking for that 'something special' to add to the boxes, that could be a constant reminder of the parents precious lost child. Rachel went above and beyond to help me out to achieve this, and created seedbombs with custom labels that brought tears to my eyes when the delivery arrived. I highly recommend using Seed Sensations, Rachel won't treat you just like every other customer, she'll treat you as YOU and make sure you get exactly what YOU want.
Received my beautiful seed sensations for Mothers Day. Have planted them in pots around my garden and they're starting to sprout. So beautifully presented, fabulous gift!
Frequently Asked Questions
Seed bombs are a fantastic way of growing plants from seed in a simple and effective way.
Our seed bombs are made from a mixture of organic compost, clay and plant seed. But wait there’s more!
We also include a natural (and secret!) ingredient to boost germination and support growth.
Large gardens, small balconies or rooftops or courtyards, seed bombs are effective anywhere.
Seed bombs are a great alternative to sowing and growing seed directly in the garden for three reasons:
1. they are protected from wild birds, pets and other predators, allowing them to germinate safely and effectively
2. they help reduce unnecessary soil disruption
3. they are great for the lazy gardener or those with a limited green thumb!
Seed Sensations aims to make it easier for everyone to enjoy a little bit (or a lot) of nature that we thrive on. Being in nature or the natural environment has proven health benefits. You’re not only feeding your health but by introducing more plants to our world we are helping to save the bees and pollinate our food.
No green thumbs needed here!
Seed bombs are so user friendly, you don’t have to fuss over them at all if you don’t want to or don’t have time/skills to do so. The simplest method is as basic as throwing them in the garden and letting nature do it’s thing.
1. Place on soil
3. Watch grow
If you want to be a bit more careful, we recommend placing the bottom half in the soil so they get some stability and don’t end up where you don’t want them. Doing this will also provide the seeds a good support within the soil to put down roots once they start coming out of their casing.
Our seed bombs are made with a mix of organic compost and clay as well as plant seed and a special ingredient that supports germination.
We also use floral decoration to make our seed bombs extra special and pretty.
Pretty much. Most plant seed we choose are plants that grow best in sun or part shade, so we recommend placing your seed bombs in a mostly sunny spot on soil that’s not ridden with weeds as they will have less competition and a better chance of germinating and growing well.
Seed bombs are made of material that is found naturally in an outdoor garden environment but are not made for dogs, cats, chickens etc to ingest so please don’t mix up your seed bombs with your pet food!
It’s a surprise! We don’t provide exact numbers as this will never be correct with nature taking it’s course. Even from one season to the next we see varying plant growth and environmental changes so just be patient and wait and see. That being said, we don’t over populate our seed bombs so you get a better germination rate of strong plants that aren’t competing against each other. One seed bomb always produces multiple plants.
