Eggling: How To Grow Thyme in an Egg

1 / 2
2 / 2

My boyfriend is a fantastic gift giver. For graduation last June, he gave me five herbs that we potted together; for my birthday, I received two egglings to crack and grow fresh herbs in. Although my potted herbs have seen better days, I have high hopes for these two thyme egglings.

Eggling is a small white porous ceramic egg, and it is slightly smaller than a turkey’s egg. The cultivation process is easy as the egg contains a rich soil and the all of the seeds. An extra pack of seeds accompany the cute egg and terracotta tray to guarantee growing success. Requiring minimal space, water and tending, the eggling is practically fool proof. The plant can grow in the egg for five months and no transplanting is needed as the egg can be planted in the soil.  

Eggling comes in three flowers, three herbs and four special edition assortments. The flowers offered are chrysanthemum, petunia and phlox and the herbs are thyme, basil and mint. Lavender, cactus, red pepper and wild strawberry are part of the special edition.

I don’t have a green thumb, but I think I’ll have great success with these egglings. I’ll keep you posted on their growth. What about you? Do you have an eggling of your own? What do you think about your little Humpty Dumpty? Sound off below!
