Your Planting Guide

First of all, please don’t get disheartened if your shoots haven’t come out. I want your experience to be 100% positive with my plantable products, however, I cannot control your growing conditions to ensure the paper/seed bombs you plant sprouts into a healthy garden of flowers, but I can give you some tips.

There are lots of factors to consider when you are growing from seeds. Temperature, moisture, air, and light conditions must be correct for seeds to germinate. I can assure you that the paper is embedded with live seeds. It has been tested by me several times, it does sprout and grow, which I am constantly showcasing in the gallery and in my social media feed.

Please be patient because some seeds take days, but some could take weeks to germinate. If it did not work the first time, please do keep trying as you have a chance to grow something wonderful and support our bee population. Let’s get started…

How To Plant Your Paper

Step 1.

Tear up the paper into smaller chunks, soak them well in water for half a minute.

Step 2.

Plant the soaked paper under a very thin layer of soil, water them each day to keep moist but don't over water them. Place in the sunniest, warmest place in your house.

Step 3.

Once you see some shoots, allow them to get stronger before planting outside in Spring or Autumn. Germination could take up to a few weeks.

How To Plant Your Seed Bombs

Step 1.

Soak the wildflower seed bombs well in water for half a minute.

Step 2.

Plant the soaked flower bombs under a very thin layer of soil water them each day to keep them moist but don’t over water it. Place it in the sunniest, warmest place of your house.

Step 3.

Once you see some shoots, allow them to get stronger before plant outside in Spring or Autumn. Germination could take up to a few weeks.

Hints & Tips

Tip 1.

Place a compostable or biodegradable see-through bag over the plant pot (please don’t do this if you are using biodegradable pots) to create a greenhouse effect. Make sure to leave enough air to flow though, otherwise your paper will rot. This could make your germination a bit faster plus the bag keeps the moisture in so you would not need to water it as often. 

Tip 2.

If you do not have a bag keep checking the soil with your finger to make sure it is not drying out and keep watering it every day. 

Tip 3.

Best to put the pot onto your warmest windowsill away from radiator heat, but please note seedlings do not have the strength to survive a brief drought so try to keep your window shut.
