What is plantable paper?
Plantable paper is a special type of eco friendly handmade paper that is embedded with flower or herb seeds. The paper is planted and will compost away while the seeds are growing. All that will be left are the flowers or herbs.
What seeds are contained in your paper and seed bombs?
All of my items contain a mix of annual and perennial seeds including: Five Spot, Candytuft, Baby Blue Eyes, Siberian Wallflower, Scarlet Flax, Zinnia, Sweet William, Pinks, Corn Poppy, Spurred Snapdragon, Catchfly, English Daisy, Gloriosa Daisy, Black-Eyed Susan, Sweet Alyssum, Snapdragon, Clarkia, Bird's Eye, California Poppy
How do I grow the seed paper?
There are a couple of ways your paper can be planted. It can be sown directly into a garden or grown in a pot. Either way, soak your seed paper for 4-6 hours, find a sunny spot, place the paper under about 1/4" of soil, water thoroughly and continue to monitor for the first 4-6 weeks to ensure that the seedlings are kept moist but not wet.
How do I plant your paper flowers?
I recommend separating the layers of the flowers before planting to ensure better germination.
When can I plant my paper?
The paper can be started anytime indoors as long as the pot is kept in a sunny window. The flowers can then be transplanted outdoors in spring.
Outdoors, paper planted late fall to early spring will take advantage of the winter moisture and will produce earlier blooms. Paper planted in summer will need to monitored more closely to ensure that it is receiving adequate moisture when the seedlings first start growing.
How long does the paper last?
I recommend that you plant your paper within 18 months to ensure thebest germination results.
Can I request specific seeds?
At this time, paper flowers and confetti are made with the mix of seeds above. Those seeds have been chosen for the high germination rate and success in growing across multiple growing regions.
Seed bombs can be customized to include specific seeds. Feel free to contact me if you have a certain type in mind so that we can make sure it is one that will grow well from seed.
What kind of pen can I use to write on the plantable paper?
Most types of pens work well on the paper including: ballpoint, rollerball,and calligraphy pens. Escort card and place card orders will come with extra tags so you can test your pen before starting.
Are the colors in the pictures accurate?
While I do my best to ensure that the colors are as accurate as possible, slight differences in monitors and screens can affect the way a color is seen. Also, because of the handmade nature of the products, there may be slight variances in color from batch to batch.
How long will my order take?
Current production times can be found in my shop announcement section. Custom orders and large orders may require additional processing time. If you need something by a specific date, please let me know so I can schedule production accordingly.
Do you ship outside the United States?
No, due to customs regarding the importation of live seeds, I only ship to the United States at this time.
