Inspired by seed bombs and the guerrilla gardening movement, Seedles aims to save the bee population. With colorful seeds that will eventually grow into a range of wildflowers, Seedles has launched the 'Grow the Rainbow' project.

These seed bombs include plant varieties native to the United States like butterfly weed, lemon mint and wild perennial lupine. As for what else makes up the vibrant seed bombs, there's organic compost to serve as fertilizer and powdered non-toxic colors to help differentiate one seed type from another. To plant, all you need to do is toss a Seedles bomb to some earth and wait for some rain and sunshine to do the rest. With more wildflowers popping up, the bee population should be making a comeback too.
