Seed bombs, also known as "seed balls", are small balls made from a mixture of soil, clay and seeds. They are used as an ecological planting method to restore vegetation in degraded or unvegetated areas.
Made from recycled ingredients from the production of our Lingots, seed bombs avoid wasting resources.
One bag contains 4 seed bombs: aromatic herbs, greens, flowers and mini-fruits & vegetables.

Seed bombs are a creative and practical tool to promote reforestation, ecological restoration and biodiversity conservation in areas where natural vegetation has been disturbed.
Seed bombs are usually hand-launched in places where natural plant growth is difficult, such as wastelands, industrial wastelands, road embankments, roadsides, or even urban gardens. The aim is to allow seeds to germinate and grow, creating habitats favorable to biodiversity, particularly for pollinating insects and birds.
The advantage of seed bombs is that they offer a simple, fun method of planting seeds, without the need for tools or special expertise. Seed bombs protect seeds from the elements and predators until environmental conditions are right for germination.
This solution is 100% biodegradable and benefits biodiversity.
One bag contains 4 seed bombs:
- Green= aromatic seeds : Basil, Chives, Coriander, Mint, Marjoram, Thyme, Dill, Parsley
