Seed bombs are a balls of clay, compost and wildflower seeds, that are easy and cheap to make, and can be thrown into areas of empty space to create mini wildflower meadows. Good for bees and butterflies and lots of fun for kids too. A way of being mildly naughty and very nice at the same time! The Garden is next to the little children’s playground just past Leytonstone station car park – on the town centre side. Discover it on Sunday.
