Comes in a coco fiber starter pot which you can plant the eggs in. The little pots retain moisture, drain well, and allow air to circulate. The plantable Easter eggs are handmade from previously used paper and contain mixed herbs and marigold seeds. Marigold seeds are great for attracting pollinators to your garden. When bees, butterflies and other small mammals help to carry pollen from plant to plant, these little heroes help sustain our ecosystems by helping plants reproduce.
