We are passionate about the environment and the plight of our native British wildflowers, butterflies, bees and other insects and wanted to do our little bit to help by encouraging people to grow more nectar-rich flowers and what better way than spreading the message with our wonderful greeting cards. We also struggle to find plastic free greeting cards so our seed paper cards tick so many sustainable boxes!
This seeded paper is left blank reverse and perfect for writing your own message. If you would prefer us to write a message if you are sending your items direct to your recipient, just let us know the message in the comment box at checkout.
How to use the plantable seed paper
Simply place the paper on top of a pot of compost (preferably peat-free!) and water well. Spring and summer are the best times of year to do this so that you can have the flowers on show in your garden in the summer! Place somewhere warm and light to germinate and keep moist – it is vital to successful germination not to let the paper dry out! Once you have lots of seedlings, transplant the whole lot into a bigger pot and place on your patio in a sunny spot. We do not recommend planting the paper directly in the garden as there is the risk of slugs and mice eating the seeds/seedlings.
