This handmade, 100% biodegradable paper is embedded with seeds. The paper is made from 100% recycled fibers and includes at least 30% post-consumer waste. It never contains chemicals or additives that are harmful to you or the environment. Seeds are added to the paper pulp during production and are chosen based on size, print-ability and ease of germination.

The first reaction to our seeded line of products is "Is this for real?" quickly followed by "But does it work?". We are here to tell you that it absolutely works! We have seen paper claiming to grow when planted that just flat out don’t work. That is not the case with our paper. We have a close relationship with the paper mill and boy do they know how to make some awesome paper! It is soft yet sturdy and definitely will grow!
Paper Planting Instructions
The seeds in our paper will grow almost anywhere. Moisten the paper in water and then gently lay it on top of moist soil. At this point you can sprinkle additional moist soil on top of the card, no more than 1/8" thick, but it is not necessary. Keep the paper constantly moist and in a sunny spot until the seeds germinate. Sprouts should form in 10-14 days. We recommend starting seeds indoors.
