Garden Bon Bons are beautifully (and we presume sustainably) packaged handmade seed ball "truffles" that look like gourmet candy. But don't try to eat them, unless you're a bird, because they're made of seeds, compost and clay.
Inspired by "garden bombs" used by guerilla gardeners these pretty gardening gifts come in two "flavors:" Herbal Tea or Italian Herb. Both are very affordably priced at $14.95 and available on the Garden Bon Bons etsy site.
Each box includes two bon bons of four different kinds of seeds. The Herbal Tea selection includes Borage, Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Stinging Nettle. The Italian Herb selection has two each of Basil, Parsley, Chives and Thyme.
Love the idea, but feeling a little crafty? Here are some instructions for making your own seed bomb, using red clay for a Valentine's Day festive looking gift. Just remember to shape them into hearts!
