Seedbombs

Going wild with flowers

Josie Jeffery

Seedbombs are a vital part of the phenomenon of guerrilla gardening, encouraging people to learn about plants through making and throwing them a fun and dynamic way of dispersing seeds. Seedbombs presents thirteen recipes for seedbombs, some designed to attract wildlife, others to create colour and scent. The book explores what seedbombs are, their origins, and the benefits to nature and the environment.

Josie Jeffery studied Horticulture & Garden Design in Brighton, Sussex, and has been seedbombing for four years.

Whether you want to launch one as a political statement (as happened recently at a mass seedbombing in Brighton where hundreds were thrown over fencing at an evicted guerrilla garden) or simply to try something that little bit horticulturally different, this book is an essential manual and a delightful pearl of wisdom. - Jan Goodey redpepper.org

This beautifully presented book is an endearing and slightly wacky mishmash of science, history, politics and green activism. Its message is simple - you can beautify derelict urban spaces by filling them with with native plants. - Butterfly Magazine
