A GREETING CARD AND A GIFT ALL IN ONE!
Recycled paper pulp is embedded with wildflower, herb or vegetable seeds. When you plant the pa-
per in a pot of soil or outside in the garden, the seeds in the paper germinate and grow into plants!
The wildflower seed paper contains a mix of Bird’s Eye, Clarkia, Black Eyed Susan, Sweet Alyssum, Catchfly, and Snapdragon.
There are also a variety of herb seeds available as well as veggie and chamomile seed papers. All the seeds are NON-GMO and tested and approved for planting in countries across the globe.
Are the seeds in seed paper NON-GMO?
Yes, the seed paper only contains seeds that are of the highest quality and germination. All the seeds used are NON-GMO (genetically modified organism).
For best germination results, seed paper should be planted within 2 years. It will still grow beyond that, but the germination rates will decline after that period. Store in a cool, dry place, to preserve the germination rates as long as possible.
You will need;
A pot or flower bed if planting outside • good potting soil • your plantable card • water • a sunny corner
For planting in a pot
Fill your pot full with good potting soil, leaving room at the top for your card. The pot can be placed indoors or outside, (not ideal if planting outside in cold frosty weather or really hot!).
Planting your card
Take your greetings card and place it on the soil in your pot or in planting bed. If you have room you can lay the whole card flat. If not, you can tear it into smaller pieces to fit the space. It’s ok if the paper overlaps. Cover greetings card with a 3/4mm layer of soil and gently press down.
After planting, give your pot a good watering you want the paper and the soil to be nicely damp (but not swimming in water!).
During the first 10 days, keep the paper moist at all times. (The water is necessary for germination.)
Germination and seedlings
Once seedlings appear, continue to keep the paper moist, but be careful not to over-water. Once sturdy plants appear, water as needed.
