The sheathing technology of Instant Seed makes it possible for the first time for the amateur gardener to have a sowing solution in which each seed can be handled individually and placed in a targeted manner. And what's more, the clay-based coating ensures that insect damage, bird damage and desiccation are a thing of the past. And the seed only needs to be ejected onto the soil, not placed underground - ideal for reseeding areas, by the way. The amateur gardener no longer has to know which seed has to be buried how deep and how 'tightly'. Mixtures of different seeds can be sown very easily.
For professional sowing, the seed envelopes are still provided with a resistant and abrasion-proof outer cover, so that they can also be spread efficiently and effectively mechanically by helicopter or mechanical spreader for large areas. The Instant Seed Coating technology opens up completely new possibilities for use and application.
Guerrilla Gardening / Seed Bombs / Seed Balls
In the 70's a group' the Green Guerillas' formed in New York with the aim of wild planting actions in the city as a new form of protest. Balls containing a mixture of mud, clay, and plant or flower seeds were used, dried, and then selectively dropped into parks, front yards, and otherwise inaccessible places. Known are cultivation experiments of barley and rice in an emergency situation after the end of World War II in Japan, which were probably precursors of this 'guerrilla gardening'.
In recent years, a small market niche has emerged that serves the concept of guerrilla gardening commercially with so-called seed bombs or seed balls, often made from mixtures of cat litter, seeds, clay and other materials, intended for sowing in flower pots as well as in the garden, qualitatively with a very wide range, but something always germinates and grows - also often used to annoy the neighbor or the municipality and bring flowers and growth where this may not be wanted.
With Instant Seed 's seed pellets based on pure and high-quality clay formulations coated seeds are offered for the first time that can be used like a seed bomb without having to be voluminously packed into a ball or seed bomb. Now patent-pending for professional use, these seed clay pellets are ideal to use as the more efficient seed bomb technique, with much lower volume and significantly increased seeding efficiency, because of their high specific gravity, 'flight' properties, and optimal germination and growing conditions due to the clay formulation. The editors of Instant Seed thank you for the tip from a 'guerilla gardener'.
