Wildflower Paper

You can gift longterm joy, when you choose to buy a card on seeded paper. The paper is made from recycled paper pulp and embedded with a mix of wildflower seeds; when planted the paper will compost leaving only the wildflowers. This is available on all of our greetings cards, just select “seeded paper” on the product page.

The presence of wildflower plants helps support dwindling populations of native pollinators including butterflies, moths and bees, helping to sustain insects that pollinate our food crops. This is particularly important in increasingly built up environments. Growing plants and flowers creates new mini ecosystems by encouraging and aiding growth of important species of pollinators, such as your friendly neighbourhood bees and butterflies.

The wildflower cards contain a mix of; Daisy, Corn Poppy and Scorpion Grasses (Forget Me Nots). We replenish our stock often to ensure they are as fresh as possible. 

How to use

Store in a cool, dry place to preserve germination rate and plant within 2 years.

It is best to plant in spring for summer flowering but can be grown indoors in a bright spot year round. Autumn planting outside will give the advantage of winter rain and offer early spring blooms.

  1. Hold the paper under running water to give it a good soak.
  2. Tear into very small pieces.
  3. Cover with a thin layer of compost and gently press down.
  4. Water (aim for damp, not flooded).
  5. Place somewhere warm and light to germinate. Do not let the paper dry out. Water well for at least 4-6 weeks.
  6. Once you have seedlings of a decent size, transfer to a bigger pot.

Please bear in mind that, as with everything in nature, many factors will come into play.

While we cannot guarantee success, your seeds should sprout if lovingly looked after.
