No, they're not chocolate. And no, they're not edible -- yet. But Garden Bon Bons are the sweetest garden gift we've ever seen.
Anne Dowell, Moultonology Seasoned gardeners and newbies alike can enjoy a fun, bite-sized project to get things growing as soon as the soil warms in spring. When Seattle landscape architect Anne Dowell first decided to stash a few seed balls in truffle boxes for a garden gift basket, she knew she was onto something.
For centuries, growers have used seed balls to store seeds, ensconced in a ball of compost (to feed the growing plant) and clay (to hold it together and prevent insect damage). Anne makes them by hand, and you can choose either her Italian herb variety or herbal tea collection. Moultonology's Garden Bon Bons herb seed balls. We're also offering Anne's Wine and Chocolates gift set, which packages a set of Garden Bon Bons with four terracotta plant nannies in a galvanized bucket. Her Garden Gift Basket includes a Sussex Trug with your choice of Garden Bon Bons and two stainless steel garden tools from the venerable English Sheffield company, Burgon & Ball.
