Making Milkweed Seed Bombs to Save the Monarch Butterflies!

In honor of Earth Day, ACI is helping to save the monarch butterflies by making milkweed seed bombs! Milkweed is the one and only host plant for monarch caterpillars. Follow your recipe below and make your own!!

The ratio is roughly: 5 parts clay, 1 part compost/potting soil/seed-starting mix, 1 part seeds.

Combine the clay and compost; if you’re using wet clay you won’t need water, if you’re using a dry clay add water sparingly until it’s moist enough to stick together. Add the seeds, form into golf ball-sized balls, and set in a dry place to harden for a few days.
