The ancient practice of tossing seed "bombs" may have first germinated in ancient Japan, where they called it tsuchi dango—which translates as "earth dumpling". So cute! It also perfectly describes the appearance of Michael Stout's adorable little seed balls, made by hand of seeds, compacted clay, and worm compost. You just throw them to grow them. They contain all the nutrients the seeds need to germinate, indoors or out. (As with any gardening, you'll achieve best results in the right climate for the seeds you're planting.)

Toss Michael's culinary herb and salad green seed bombs onto your back yard, or any other suitable location, and grow a kitchen garden. A thoughtful gift for experienced and aspiring gardeners.

(Yes, we know—we had you at "earth dumpling.") Handmade in Indiana.

Culinary Herb Seed Bombs: Basil, Dill, Cilantro, Chives, and Parsley.
Salad Greens Seed Bombs: Chervil, Swiss Chard, Cress, Arugula, and Lettuce.


Made in Indiana

Michael Stout was a suburban teenage hooligan, spending his time in train yards and alleyways with spray paint cans in his hands. He studied graphic design at Herron School of Art and Design, after which he wandered aimlessly and worked in print and copy shops. His teenage interest in the intersection of art and public space (read: graffiti art) led him to earn a Masters in Urban Planning at the University of Cincinnati, where he learned to crunch numbers, make maps, and appreciate the city for its chaos. In addition to over 15 years of design, typography, and screen printing experience, he’s worked in the public art field managing community engagement and artist processes. He loves working on thoughtful, unique, playful products that create meaningful places and community experiences.
