MORE ABOUT PLANTABLE SEED PAPER
WHAT IS PLANTABLE SEED PAPER?
Plantable seed paper is special handmade paper embedded with wildflower seeds. When planted in soil, wildflowers will grow.
CAN I MAIL MY SEED PAPER ENVELOPE?
Yes, these handmade plantable seed paper envelopes hold up as well as machine-made envelopes. They are relatively light and flat and do not typically require any additional postage but you may want to double check with USPS if adding additional weight to your mailing.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PLANT?
1. Plant outdoors in early spring or late fall. Fall plantings will take advantage of winter rains to give you early spring blooms.
2. Plant anytime indoors, then transplant to a more permanent location in early spring.
ARE THE SEEDS NON-INVASIVE?
Seedlings has made sure to only include species that are non-invasive to all regions of the US and Canada. These include a hearty and diverse mix of annual and perennial wildflowers that will grow well across all growing regions.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF SEED PAPER ENVELOPES?
Seed paper can grow even after 5 or 6 years, but typically germination rates start to decline after 3 or 4 years. This will also depend on how the paper is stored – keeping it in a cool, dry place will preserve the germination rates much longer than if the paper is kept in a hot, humid environment.
