What Is Seed Paper?
Our Seed Tags are created out of handmade, recycled paper which are embedded with live seeds! When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, the seeds grow and the paper composts away. All that is left behind is flowers, herbs or vegetables, and no waste.
How Is Seed Paper Made?
Step 1 | Making The Paper
Recycled paper is collected from local organisations, businesses and schools. It’s then mixed into a pulp to form the base of our paper.
Step 2 | Adding The Seeds
Seeds are added to the pulp and placed into a water bath. Paper making frames are dipped into the bath to create a sheet of Seed Paper.
Step 3 | Drying The Paper
Seed Paper sheets are then dried and flattened. It’s now ready for us to use!
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!
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.
What Will Grow?
We source all our seeds from within Australia. We've included Australian native flowers in the Seed Paper as they are likely to be of great benefit to bird, insect and animal life.
