Flower Shells: Shotgun Shells Packed WIth Flower Seeds

December 18, 2013


Flower Shells are shotgun shells loaded with flower seeds instead of birdshot/buckshot (previously: game-bird seasoning shells). The idea is that instead of taking life from the world, you'll be giving life BACK. Unless you shoot an animal, then it's a wash. The shells will eventually come in 12 different flower varieties including cornflower, columbine, daisy, poppy, sunflower, clemantis, lavender, sweet pea, lupine, carnation, peony and a collection of meadow flowers. Hmm, so no marijuana. Right now a pack of four shells will set you back a staggering $50, but they hope to drive production costs down as popularity increases. IF popularity increases. Now, are you thinking what I'm thinking? "You want to plant a poppy field in my chest?" SO BAD.

Keep going for several videos of the seeds being planted, but no time-lapse to actually see them growing.

Thanks to Side Effect, which may include loss of hearing, growing flowers out of your foot, and accidental death.

    This made me remembre Grim Fandango. You gonna get sprouted!!

  • Rotoruaboy

    wouldn't the heat from burning propellant cook the seeds like what a popcorn maker does to corn? kinda goes against the point of shells that plant flowers, but getting shot with a face full of baked seeds sounds rather delicious

    Gonna pop a carnation in your ass...

  • Gene Kaufman

    I'm thinking of Grim Fandango when I see this.
    Probably the only one though...

  • Lu Cho

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    Man, the scene on the hill with the greenhouse at the top, all those sprouted skeletons. I'm going to have to dig that out and play it now.

  • Klaws

    You are not alone, sir.

  • David Shire

    Tulips? Huh, I was expecting marigolds...

  • Broseph

    so the seeds atually survive impact and can grow? or do you only manage to smash them against a rock really really fast if you fire at the ground?

  • Hippies ruin everything.

  • McfeelySmackup

    So...nobodys going to take a swing at shotgun shells loaded with Columbine? nobody?

  • Brandon

  • Matthew Fleury

    now wen the mob says something about someone "pushing up daisies" it's true XD

  • CawaLimon

    Reminds me of that "Flower Warfare" video

  • Alec Aaron Roberts

    Marijuana seeds

  • Prometheus

    I don't know how much market popularity will go up. I mean there can't be a huge overlap of people who own a shotgun and people who want to plant flowers.
