flower grenade Ceramic seed grenade

At almost $15 US apiece, plus shipping from the UK, you won’t catch me smashing too many of these seed-laden ceramic pineapples in the near future. Give me a half-dozen at that price, packed in hay inside a roughly-stenciled wooden crate (“HAND GRENADE, FLOWER SEED, 6CT, NOT FOR EXPORT”), and we’ll talk. Still, pretty appealing concept–you got the flower power, the military cool factor, and the visceral appeal of smashing a ceramic pot all rolled into one.

Update: Woops! Looks like I got the pricing wrong. €12 actually gets you three of these puppies, which seems a bit more reasonable. Sorry flower grenade maker people!
