Seed balls (or earth balls), as the name implies, are seeds rolled within a ball of clay and soil. It is the solution to the problems experienced with the traditional way of restoring natural areas.

The traditional way of reseeding natural areas was simply done by scattering seeds on top of the soil. But this was not very effective for growing plants. Most seeds either get baked by the sun, eaten by birds and other animals, blown away by strong winds or washed away by heavy rains.  The few seeds left to germinate and grow are often clumped together leaving most areas still bare!

With seed balls, all these negative factors are addressed. The clay ingredient protects the seeds from being eaten by birds or other wildlife. The weight of the balls also protect the seeds from strong winds. Then its shape preserves enough moisture for the seeds to germinate. And when the seeds start to sprout, the crumbled ball provides for the start of its rooting system.

From there, nature does its job where plants continue to produce and grow until the area is covered!
