Eggling Crack & Grow Egg Plants

Egg plants?  Not really.  Nor are they 'eggplants.'  Not even eggs.  But they do grow plants, not chicks, and when the plants get big, you can smash the Egglings and use them for fertilizer.  The creative design for these egg-like planters is a relief from the typical plastic seeder pots you want to stash somewhere out of view.

Eggling is a product of spontaneous designer *noted, and it makes gardening simple and fun for kids and adults.  Like the tagline says, just Crack & Grow.  Crack the top of the Eggline, peel off the top shell, and you'll find plant seeds and fortified peat mixture - enough to feed the plant for five months! Just add water, as directed.

After five months, or when the plant has outgrown its Egg, it's time for a transplant!

The thin egg-like pot is made of ceramic bisque.  Just crack it to release the plant, re-pot the plant or place it in the ground, and sprinkle the bisque eggshell around it. It will disintegrate into the soil to provide more nurture for the plant.

The Eggling is available from Amazon.com in herb and floral Egglings.
