Make Your Garden Bloom By Blasting Them With Flowershells | Digital Trends


Still toiling away with trowels and rakes to tend your unruly garden? Skip the hands-and-knees routine and show your soil who’s boss with Flower Shells.
What’s a Flower Shell you ask? It’s exactly what it sounds like: a shotgun shell loaded with flower seeds. And no, just to clarify, you don’t stuff these things in the ground like little biodegradeable bulbs and wait for ‘em to sprout either – you actually load them into a shotgun and blast them into the soil like Rambo. The shells are standard 12 gauge (0.729 in, 18.5 mm) shotgun ammunition, but instead of being filled with birdshot or buckshot, they’re loaded with one of twelve different seed types. You can currently blast your choice of cornflower, daisy, poppy, sunflower, clematis, columbine, lavender, sweet pea, lupine, carnation, peony, or an assortment of wildflowers.
To ensure that you’ve got the proper level of firepower for the seeds, the amount of gunpowder in each shell has been reduced in proportion to the type of seeds it’s loaded with. That means they’re ideal for violently reseeding your garden beds, but probably not so great for home protection and self defense. Then again, threatening intruders with a face full of hot peony seeds might be surprisingly effective, but we don’t recommend that you give it a shot (no pun intended).
Unfortunately, Flower Shells aren’t in large-scale production at this point, but it’s creators have made and tested a handful of them, which you can see in the video below. We’ll keep you posted on availability, but for the time being you can find out more at flowershell.com

I use my shotgun to open the bags of cow poo for my garden. Six bags back to back, six rounds of 12 gauge steel shot target loads and a Mossberg. I also use a chainsaw to get the Christmas tree out of the house. This stuff is right up my alley. Now TRAAK's you have seen it all. :)

Bender, you better huf some oxygen. You are still suffering from that aspiration attack and don't realize the danger you are putting yourself in. Lead shot is much safer and my preferred method..stay safe..:cool:

My boss's next door neighbor blows up beaver dams for a living . Big problem with timber here. He used TNT to blast holes to plant a fruit orchard. Says the explosion not only digs the hole it loosens up the ground for the roots. :) pretty smart guy.
