How does seed paper work?
Some regions will have better luck with some seeds than others—but all regions will have a variety that thrives. Follow the tips below, and you’ll be enjoying beautiful wildflowers in no time!
*While perennials don’t normally bloom the first year, your annuals will. You can look forward to the perennials come back each year to remind you of the person that sent it.
When to Plant
1. Plant the paper outdoors early spring or late fall. Fall plantings will take advantage of the winter rains to give you early spring blooms.
2. Plant anytime indoors, then transplant to a more permanent location in the early spring.
How to Plant and Nourish
1. Soak the seed paper in water overnight.
2. Loosen the soil, or fill a planter pot ¾ of the way with potting soil.
3. Place the wet seed paper in the planter and add a light layer of soil on top to hold in moisture.
4. Water well, especially during the first 4 to 6 weeks.
5. Once the sprouts are well established they can easily be transplanted to a more permanent outdoor location.
What is your paper made out of, is it eco friendly?
Our seed paper is crafted from 100% post-consumer, post-industrial, recycled paper. It is either natural white (the base pulp color), or colored with all-natural, vegetable-based pigments. When printed, most sheets are printed with water-soluble 4-color process inks or soy based inks, when letterpress printed. If packaging is required, we use corn-based packaging. Our production facility is powered by a 30KW solar power system–enough for all of our energy needs and then some!
