We love this plantable seed paper Save the Date card! Even better, there are real pressed flowers on it to make it even prettier! The pressed flowers will be chosen from what is available at the time of ordering so probably won’t be the same as those in the photo. This Save the Date is printed on A6 seeded paper – please advise text in the box above or via email after. You can also change the font if you wish – just be sure to tell us what you would like!
The seed paper is made from thick recycled cotton paper (about 150 gsm) embedded with various flower seeds. These seeds include: Catchfly, Daisy, Poppy, Sweet Alyssum, Spurred Snapdragon and Black-eyed Susan. The paper is made in the UK.
Planting instructions are included at the bottom of the card, and a recycled envelope is also included. We have shown above a photo of the paper germinating.
How to plant your seeded paper Save the Date card
Simply place the seed card 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.
