This enchanted sling allows for seeds flung by it to grow both immensely faster and larger than normal. For already magical seeds, for example a Magic Bean, the seed acts as if carefully planted at the point they land. It is still necessary for the landing point to have _some_ planting medium. It would be possible to Â‘plant' magic beans into a earth elemental, for example.

Well why not....use of this sling kind of reminds of the climatic 'battle' between the main character and her mother in the book 'Among Other'. You know when she is tearing pages of out of Lord fo the Rings and hurling them at her mom. The pages then shoot up into powerful tree...does the sling kind of work like that?
My thoughts are that the sling needs magical/fantastic seeds to really shine, but if you mean seeds instead of pages of a book, then yes.
I still like the thought of hitting an earth elemental and turning it into a chia pet :P
I would make a druid type and use this sling as a surprise weapon or terrain altering tool. Bramble and nettle seeds could be fired out of it to make obstructing hedges. Stinging, stabby, thorny, and viney plants would be fantastic for this. Also useful for making a quick escape by throwing tangling plant seeds behind you, tripping up pursuants.
animated topiary seeds?
A single magic acorn that if used in the sling grow/summons an ent/treant that fights for the sling bearer.
Instant biomass to climb a tower, a wall, to obstruct a river, etc
Instant raw feast, slinging seed pods for a plant that can be eaten raw, or easily cooked.
I like this. It's cute yet utilitarian. Axle's comment made me laugh. I've never heard of 'Among Other' but now I'm thinking of a meta-sling that quickly 'plots' 'idea seeds' growing them into full fledged ideas. I want one. Lol.
