Seeded Postcard Planting Instructions

Depending on the seed type, choose an appropriate spot to plant your seeded paper. We recommend using new seed raising mix to plant your seeded paper in.

The seeds are interspersed throughout your postcard. Simply tear it up and plant in several different places around your garden, or in multiple pots.

1

Plant the paper (a single layer is best) under 3-5mm of quality soil.

2

Water thoroughly.

3

Ensure the seeded paper is kept moist throughout the germination period.

Please note: We encourage responsible planting behaviour. Seeded paper is designed for domestic gardens and is not for roadside planting. Please be aware that quarantine restrictions may apply when sending seeded paper products internationally and interstate. At the time of making the handmade paper, the seed selections were able to be posted to all states and territories in Australia. This may not be the case if the seeded paper is stored for a long period of time.
