Whether scribbling away on a desk, indulging in far too much art homework or being mesmerised for hours by the electric sharpener - we all remember those tired and discarded pencil stubs from our school days. Now there's a way to turn those weary wooden nibs into beautiful thriving herbs - Sprout Pencils!

These eight high-quality and sustainably harvested cedar pencils have a clever water-activated seed capsule in their tip. So when you've finally shaved your writing instrument down to an unusable length, simply flip that pencil round and stick it in the ground.

With a little love and tenderness (water and sunlight) your scrumptious herb will rise from the soil like a photosynthetic phoenix and the remaining pencil acts as a helpful labelled planting marker.

Give a new lease of life to hopeless pencil stubs and turn your verbs into herbs.
