Seed Paper Planting Instructions

Are you ready to plant seed paper but aren't sure how? Below is everything you need to know to get the best results from Botanical PaperWorks seed paper. it's incredibly easy, even if you're not a green thumb!

How to plant seed paper

Place your seed paper on soil that is slightly compressed, but not too hard-packed. Add 1/8 inch of soil on top of the paper and give it a good drink of water. After that, make sure it's always moist and in a sunny spot. You should see sprouts within 7-10 days!

When's the best time to plant seed paper?

Spring is the best time to plant if you live in an area where the ground does not freeze. However, fall is ideal if you live in a climate where the ground stays frozen for several months. Botanical PaperWorks seed paper can be planted indoors year-round in a pot of soil near a window that gets plenty of sunlight.

How long does seed paper take to grow?

If you plant your seed paper according to the instructions, you should see sprouts within 7-10 days! The plants will grow and mature at different rates depending on the surrounding conditions but typically you will see wildflowers blooming with 8-12 weeks.

What if it doesn't grow?

All of our plantable paper is embedded with tested and approved seeds. The key, as in any instance of growing flowers from seeds, is to provide your plantable paper with a lot of light, water, and attention. Although we perform rigorous tests on all our seeds and paper, plants can sometimes just be finicky things and will not always grow the way we want them to. Keep in mind that seeds will act differently in varying environments, soil types, and climates. We hope that these seed paper planting instructions help your plantable paper grow!

I received seed paper at the Chicago Flower and Garden Show. What seeds does it contain? The contents are not on the paper packaging, nor The Nature Conservancy site, nor this site - the makers of the paper. Growing Paper is cute but gardeners need to know what is in them to know where to site them so they can get enough light and water, will not compete with the wrong plants and hamper either's growth, can be recognized and distinguished from weedswhen they are seedlings, etc. Will you PLEASE state obviously and clearly WHAT SEEDS ARE ON THE PAPER?

I have the same question as chrystal. What type of seeds are in the paper from the Chicago garden show?
