About Our Seed Paper

FAQ

Here in France ! The cards are made in my workshop which is situated in the Parc Naturel Régional de Millevaches, La Corrèze.
Whilst I do not make the paper myself, the cards are designed, printed, cut and made by me!

It’s an eco-friendly paper made from recycled, post-consumer waste materials (used paper collected from school and businesses) which is then embedded with wildlife friendly flower seeds.

Clarkia elegans: flowers June – August

The seeds are non-GMO

You can plant the card in your garden or in a pot between March – June or inside throughout the year.

The seed paper is certified for sale and planting in France, Europe, UK, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Australia and many other countries around the world.

I use water based inks. Our
printers have 8 refillable reservoirs, no ink cartridges to throw away!

I advise that the card be planted within the first 2 years. After 2 years, the germination rate of the seeds can diminish

Planting Advise

Although the cards can be planted either in your garden or in a pot I recommend planting them in a pot as it is easier to maintain the moisture and warmth levels needed at the beginning.

The cards are best planted after the lasts frosts have passed, ideally between March – June.

For the best results we recommend that the card be soaked in water for at least one hour prior to planting.

The card can be planted either whole or torn into pieces. Torn into pieces will enable you to use over a larger area and to get a better distribution of flowers.

After planting it is important to keep the paper watered and warm during the first 7-10 days. This is to help the paper to break down, release the seeds and germination process to start.If the paper is too dry, and hard the seeds
are unable to grow through it!

Once seedlings begin to appear they can be watered as normal.
