Garden gnome seed bombs

Check out this new take on the seed bomb. It’s a biodegradable helium balloon painted with the classically kitschy garden gnome. The work of Dutch Studio TX, the seed-filled balloons deflate after a day, landing on the sod attached to the bottom of each balloon.

“Each balloon is made of PLA plastic and painted with 100% water-based
chalk. The balloons take 4-6 months to decompose and leave a burst of
color in their wake.”

More art piece than practical seed delivery method, but still pretty cool. I love the idea of these seed-carrying balloons deployed all over the city, delivering their floral cargo like little gnome parachutists. What a sight that would be!
