Grow your own Herbal Teas with this selection of gourmet seed bombs.
All Garden Bon Bons are hand-made using a centuries-old technique of rolling seeds with rich organic compost and clay into a ball. The compost provides nutrients and the clay protects the seeds from insects. There is about a packet-worth of seed in each Bon Bon. We present our unique seed balls as special garden truffles, a different shape for each seed - and have dusted some with natural pesticides like ground coffee and cinnamon. Enjoy!
There are eight garden truffles in this handcrafted herbal tea selection - two each of Borage, Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Anise.
Garden Bon Bon descriptions: Red Clay Square - Lemon Balm/Melissa officinalis. Fresh leaves for teas and also for salads. 18"-26" tall. 70 days to maturity.
Red Clay Blossom - Chamomile/Matricaria recutita. German chamomile for a stronger flavor. Daisy-like flowers in tea induce a soothing sleepiness. 18"-24" tall. 60-65 days to maturity.
Red Clay Truffle - Borage/Borago officinalis. Leaves for lovely cucumber flavoured teas. Blossoms are mostly an amazing blue (with possibly some pink) and can be thrown into salads and desserts. 18"-30" tall. 60 days to maturity.
White Clay Truffle - Anise/Pimpinella anisum. Classic anise or licorice flavor. Tiny white flowers, seeds and leaves for teas, cooking, salads, curries and mexican dishes. 18"-36" tall. 75-80 days to harvest.
GARDEN BON BONS PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Find a sunny spot for your Garden Bon Bon to grow, indoors by a window or outside after frost season has passed, in the garden or in pots. . 2. Put the Garden Bon Bon on top of the earth, gently pressing it in a tiny bit or simply tossing it on top. The seeds won’t germinate if the Bon Bon is buried by earth. 3. Water Garden Bon Bon well until it germinates. This is important! Clay absorbs more moisture than regular soil so water both the Bon Bons and surrounding soil generously. 4. Watch it grow (if the Garden Bon Bon isn’t getting enough water outdoors, help nature along by watering regularly).
Herbal teas can be made with fresh or dried herbs. I like to cut the leaves fresh from the garden, walk into the house, and throw them in a teapot. Be sure to boil the water before adding herbs to preserve the essential oils.
Also - if seeds have germinated and you go away or forget about them for a week or so and they dry out (it happens to the best of us, ahem) feel free to start watering again. There should be enough seeds banked in the ball to get an new bumper crop growing.
