CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PLANT CARD

A plant card is a special type of greeting card. The card is made from paper scraps collected in the local community and mixed to create new paper. Most of the paper collected is already recycled paper material.

 

We add flower seeds to the paper mixture, so the finished paper contains flower seeds. The cards are printed using water-based colour, and the organic dyes degrade easily.

 

Once you have read your greeting in the card, you can tear it into pieces and plant it in a pot or directly in the soil. Follow the procedure below. Shortly afterwards, your card will sprout and produce lovely wild flowers or herbs.

INSTRUCTIONS

Fill the pot with soil, so there is room for an extra 2-3 cm of soil on top. You can also plant the card in a flowerbed, digging a 2-3-cm hole.

 

Place the card in the soil. If you wish, you can rip it into pieces and scatter them.

 

Cover the card with about 2-3 cm of soil.

 

Water well.

 

Keep the soil constantly moist for about the first 10 days. The seeds cannot germinate if the paper does not dissolve. But be careful not to overwater.

 

Once the seeds germinate, you should water them between once and three times a week and give them plenty of sun.

THE ADVANTAGES OF PLANT CARDS

The plant cards are made from recycled paper. That means they reduce the use of trees in paper production, instead recycling resources that already exist.



The card acquires extra meaning and dimension. Once the flowers bloom, they will remind the recipient of the greeting associated with the card.

 

If you plant the card outdoors, the flowers can help the bees and other insects do their important job on behalf of nature.
