A unique gift for gardeners and creative cooks alike. A handful of edible blossoms adds unexpected color and excitement to salads, soups, and garnishes. Plant indoors or outdoors, these fun garden seed balls are handcrafted using a centuries-old technique of rolling seeds with rich organic compost and clay. Nutrients are provided by the compost and the clay provides natural protection against insects. Each is hand shaped and decorated, a different "truffle" design for each seed type.
Arrives in a gift box with 8 seed balls truffles. There will be two large round red clay truffles: these are heirloom purple, white, and yellow Violas that can grow to be 5" - 7" tall. Also, two red clay truffles dusted with cinnamon, a natural pesticide, are bright orange Calendula which have a peppery flavor and can grow 12" - 24" tall. The red clay squares are a blue Anise which has a licorice-minty flavor perfect for salads and teas. This robust flower can grow 24" - 36". Lastly the white clay truffle is Nasturtium; a peppery red, organe, and yellow flower that is wonderful on soups and salads. Grows 14" - 16" tall.
Simply find a sunny spot and place on top of soil (in your garden or by a sunny window). Press down a bit but do not bury. Water the bon bons generously as well as the surrounding soil. The clay absorbs quite a bit of water so don't be shy. Water regularly. Within a few days you should see sprouts and fresh herbs will begin growing!
These bon bons are made for planting... then enjoying the sight and flavor of fresh edible flowers!
