What is Seed Paper?
Plantable paper is a biodegradable eco-paper that is made with post-consumer materials (no trees harmed for this paper!) and embedded with seeds. When the paper is planted in soil, the seeds grow, and the paper composts away. The seeds are viable for about 2 years, so do try to plant them within that timeframe for best results.
Types of Seeds
All seed paper products have a blend of Catchfly, Sweet Alyssum, Snapdragon, Bird’s Eye, Black Eyed Susan, and Clarkia seeds — so, regardless of the design on the paper, you will get one or more of those seed types.
How to Grow
- Plant the seed paper under a thin 1/8 inch of soil.
- Water thoroughly.
- Place in a sunny spot and keep moist during germination.
