When Native Americans sowed their crops, they didn’t use tractors
or plows. To keep valuable seed from blowing away or being eaten
by birds, they often hid it inside little balls of clay. The same method
works well today: just scatter these seed balls on prepared soil and water
well. Handmade in the USA by a company that employs persons with disabilities. Seeds will germinate in 7 to 30 days after planting.
