Pack of 30 hexatastic seed paper hexagons or, if you prefer, seed paper honeycomb! There is a choice of 3 types of seed paper to have the hexagons/honeycomb cut from – meadow wildflower and meadow grass seeds (with grass scattered throughout); poppy seeds with coloured petals; and Forget-me-not seeds. Please choose from the drop-down menu above. The meadow and poppy seeds are UK-grown. The paper is made in the UK from recycled paper and cotton.
Each shape measures 4.5 x 5 cm. The paper is made especially for us in the UK, so you won’t find it anywhere else! A planting information card is also included.
How do I plant seed paper hexagons and seed paper honeycomb?
Easily! Even the most horticulturally-challenged of people can plant them with no fuss! They are best planted in Spring/Summer. Get yourself a pot of (preferably peat-free) compost and then run a heart under the tap to give it a good soak for a few seconds. Place the heart on top of the compost and cover lightly with more compost. Then water again. Place the pot somewhere warm and light to aid germination. It is vital not to let the paper dry out – to do so will result in failure! Once the seedlings are growing nicely, repot the whole lot into a bigger pot and grown on. They look great on the patio or balcony when in full flower. It is not a good idea to plant outside into the soil as mice, slugs and other little tinkers will eat the seeds and seedlings.
