How to plant seed paper hearts
These plantable seed paper hearts are very easy to plant! They are best sown in Spring/Summer. Simply place a shape on top of a pot of compost (preferably peat-free!) and water well. Place somewhere warm and light to germinate – and do not allow to dry out (very important!). Once the seedlings have developed well, repot the whole lot into a bigger pot and place outside on your patio or balcony to flower in the summer! We do not recommend planting directly into the soil due to the risk of mice and slugs eating the seeds and seedlings. This is quite a thick paper so it is a good idea to give it a good soak before putting on the compost and to make sure you water it regularly! A planting information card is included.
Forget-me-nots are pretty little blue flowers with yellow centres, growing to about 6 inches high, and attracting various pollinating insects. They easily germinate and self-seed prolifically so you will never be without them!
