Seed Balls Clevery Disguised as Chocolates

Garden Bon Bons aren’t eatable, they’re plantable. The garden truffles are actually seed balls cleverly disguised as chocolate. The handcrafted balls of clay, organic compost, and seeds are an old-fashioned way to plant seeds. They’ll keep up to a couple of years, but the seeds are most viable if planted within a few months of receipt.

Seed balls or seed bombs, by design, don’t need any special skill to plant. The compost gives the seeds nutrients and the clay holds the ball together and provides a barrier to insects.
