Voila! When they are dry they can be scattered where you would like the flowers to grow, in a natural/unstructured pattern!

 

Note: this recipe is a variation to the seed balls made with clay as I struggled to find powdered clay. However, it is important to mention that flour balls might be more attractive to birds than the clay ones.
