Hoja Seed Ball - Smash & Grow - Seed Bomb your Flower Garden

Details

What am I looking at here?
A Hoja (pronounced “Hoe-Jah”) is a sphere of seeds, soil, clay, and paint. Smash it to scatter the seeds anywhere you want a garden to grow.

The seeds are a thoughtful blend of 20 different annual and perennial flowers, mixed with organic potting soil. The clay is AP registered non-toxic, unfired red clay from Texas. I hand paint every Hoja with several layers of non-toxic tempera paint, and let it dry. Then each Hoja is relentlessly hand buffed until it gives off a glossy shine. Each Hoja is a unique creation. Once a Hoja is ready, it is destroyed.

Why?
A Hoja main purpose is to explore the illusion of permanence that we live with in our daily lives. Hojas hold a tension in their beauty: you must destroy the Hoja to make the flowers grow. But people find this simple act of smashing a Hoja difficult. Hojas play on the tension of impermanence and beauty, challenging you.


Where?
Hojas are proudly made in Oakland, California.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Inspired by the seed bombs from the 1970’s movement, Guerrilla Gardening, Hojas can be smashed into a vacant lot, or alongside a highway, a derelict playground, or in any patch of dirt. Over time, flowers grow, making our communities more beautiful. Sometimes Hojas don’t make it to vacant lots, sometimes they live on people's shelves to look at and hold. A Hoja is an experience as much as it is a product.

More Info

What kind of Seeds?
There are 20 types of flower seeds inside every Hoja, enough to cover 9 square feet. The flowers were selected for their tenacity, drought resistance, and beauty. There are poppies, marigolds, snapdragons, and more.

What kind of Soil?
The soil is organic potting soil. There isn’t enough soil in the Hoja to make a difference to the seeds growth, but it acts as a protective medium, keeping the seeds cool and dry.

What kind of Clay?
The clay used to form the outer shell of the Hoja is regular potter’s clay. But a Hoja is not fired in a kiln like pottery, it is air dried to ensure the clay completely dissolved in the Hoja is broken.

What kind of Paint?
The paint is non-toxic, water-based tempera paint, like you’d find in a kindergarten classroom.
