3) A basket of heart-shaped seed bombs for a beloved gardener!
I just recently learned about “seed bombs.” They’re essentially little balls of clay and compost that are packed full of wildflower or herb seeds. They’re a staple for the “guerrilla gardener” who might chuck them over fences into abandoned lots or onto median strips in the middle of a highway. The balls hold up well in any weather and provide starting nutrients for the baby plants. Heavy Petal has a wonderful series of posts about them - including how to make them, and seed bombs in action! Wouldn’t it be fun to whip up a bunch of these in heart shapes, full of wildflower seeds for your friends for Valentine’s day?
4) Share the love with Mother Earth! Flowers are a traditional gift for your valentine. How about sending some eco-friendly flowers? Organic Bouquet supplies flowers that are sustainably grown while using sustainable, biodegradable, green packaging.
