How to plant?

How does it work?

Now that you probably know a little bit more about seed paper... we must address the question that is on every lips... How do I plant my seed paper items? Follow us step by step to start growing your beautiful wildflowers or herbs. Don't worry, it's quite simple. 

Step 1 | Prepare the soil 

Before getting started, you must find the place you want to plant your paper. It can be inside or outside, but make sure you choose a place that has sunshine for at least a few hours a day.
Outdoor: You can plant our products outside during spring or summer. Since most of our flowers are annuals (only the Rudbeckia is perennial), they won't grow again they following year. The good news if planting outdoor is that your seeds might require a little less maintenance since nature will do most of the work by itself. 
Indoor: If you plant inside, you don't have to wait for a specific season to plant. On the other hand, you will need to take care of your seeds a little bit more by watering them more often, making sure they have enough soil, etc.
Once you have found the perfect spot, fill it with soil and press it down firmly (any type of soil is fine). 

Step 2 | Plant the paper 

Now that the soil is ready, tear the paper into small pieces or lay it flat on the soil surface. Make sure you layer the paper directly on the soil and not one on top of another. Once the surface has a good paper coverage, take a tiny bit of soil and spread it on top of the paper so that you can still see bits of the paper throughout (approximately 1/8 inch of soil). The last thing to do is to add a good amount of water on top to make sure the soil and the paper are moist.

Step 3 | Care 

Now, the fun part begins! For the first few weeks, your seeds are germinating so they need to stay in moist soil at all time. Do not allow the soil to become dry (indoor or outdoor). Do not hesitate to touch the soil to see if it is still moist before watering. With time, the paper will decompose and the seeds will germinate. When you see tiny green leaves coming out, you are on the right path. Continue watering regularly to make sure it continues to grow. Water it at least once a week if indoor, and let nature take care of it if outdoor (unless there is no rain for more than a few days). Please remember, nature doesn't rush! It might take a few weeks before you start seeing any changes. And the flowers won't appear until a few months later. It is the beauty of nature, isn't it?

Sprouts usually start showing after 1-2 weeks

Flowers usually start blooming after 1-3 months
