What is seed paper?

Seed paper is a special eco-friendly paper made from post-consumer materials embedded with wildflower, herb or vegetable seeds. When you plant this plantable cardstock in a pot of soil or outside in a garden, the seeds in the paper germinate and grow into plants.

How does seed paper work?

Seed paper is made from recycled paper and isn’t coated or treated in any way so that it readily decomposes in soil. Once you plant it, the seeds will germinate and take root as the paper itself biodegrades. All you have to do is keep it moist in a sunny spot and you’ll be able to watch it grow.
