Title: Source for materials for making seedballs
Answered by: Barbara Medford

QUESTION:

Regarding your answer to the person looking for Red Clay for making seedballs: The Red Clay can be found at Armadillo Clay in Austin, TX. (The inquirer lives in Round Rock). The Wildflower Center article about making seedballs mentions that red clay may be found at a ceramic supply store, and Armadillo Clay is just that. The folks there usually know about its use as a seed ball ingredient. Thank you! Rosina Newton
