WHAT DO I NEED?
London has loads of clay soil - perfect. Otherwise you can add a little clay powder to get it sticky.
For quick satisfaction choose annuals (they’ll spring up this year): cornflowers, poppies, cosmos, nigella, yellow rattle (this one is great for keeping back the grass)…
If you’re playing the long game add perennials and biennials (will give you flower next year): hollyhocks, honesty, foxgloves, field scabious…
- Add water to your soil and roll into a ball
- Shove your thumb in
- Drop a pinch of seeds into your thumb hole
- Smooth over so your seeds are secure in your bomb
