Plantable seed paper is 100% biodegradable eco-paper made with post-consumer and post-industrial paper waste that is embedded with seeds. Therefore, no trees are harmed for this paper! When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, wildflowers will grow and the paper will compost away.
Our seed paper is proudly handmade in Canada.
It's so easy, anyone can do it! Place your seed paper on soil that is slightly compressed, and not too hard-packed. Add about 1/8" of soil on top of the paper and give it a good drink of water. Place it in a sunny spot and make sure it’s always moist. See below illustration for details!
Our plantable seed cards can be planted indoors or outside, so you can choose according to the temperature and conditions at the time of planting.
You may plant indoors year-round in a pot of soil near a window that gets plenty of sunlight. For outdoor, Spring is the best time to plant if you live in an area where the ground does not freeze, otherwise plant during Fall if you live in a climate where the ground stay frozen for several months.
We do not recommend planting outside if it’s blizzarding or desert-hot!
