Item details

All Garden Bon Bons (TM) 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. 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!

1. Find a sunny spot for your Garden Bon Bon to grow, after frost season if planted outdoors in the garden.
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! The clay absorbs more moisture than regular soil so give the bon bons and surounding soil a good dousing.
4. Watch it grow (if the Garden Bon Bon isn’t getting enough water outdoors, help nature along by watering regularly).This is a garden gift for planting - not for eating (until later).

This presentation is a box of handcrafted garden seed ball truffles.
There are eight garden truffles in this herb collection, two each of Basil, Parsley, Chives and Thyme.

Garden Bon Bon descriptions:
