Throw Down - A Gro Project from Miracle-Gro

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
Sometime in May, my husband bought me some flower seeds that until now I haven't planted yet. I have few packets in our garage just waiting for me when to roll-up my sleeves and do some planting. I guess I am just being lazy or shall I say due to lack of inspiration I can't find time to do it. But after seeing this video below, it inspires me to do something of those flower seeds.
Yes, I think I can try and discover if I am a green thumb person by doing The Gro Project, especially their Throw Down, which I think is fun, unique and uncomplicated. It is one of the fun garden projects by Miracle-Gro that really caught my interest. I thought this is something so neat to do and I am sure you would love to try it too, so let me share to you how this is being done.
And below you can read the step-by-step How To:
  • Mix equal parts potting mix, clay and seeds in your bucket.
  • Grab a handful then roll into a small ball, about ¾” in diameter. Add water as needed.
  • Place the balls on a tray and dry them in the sun for a few days.
  • Wrap them in cheesecloth to give away as gifts.
  • Throw down on the ground! Get them off to a good start by feeding them Miracle-Gro® Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food every three months.
I like this Gro project and I bet you would too. So if you need more inspirations and ideas for gardening follow Miracle-Gro on Pinterest. Please check their site too as they have an expansive library of videos and articles of different gardening tips for everyone as well as tools that can help solve different problems with gardening and finding the right products to have a great yield and healthy garden. I am a beginner when it comes to gardening and the experts at Miracle-Gro can surely help me in a big way.

I love wild flowers and you really do not have to do much to get them to grow--of course the birds might have something to say about this! What a unique idea to roll into a ball and give as gifts!!
