How to Grow Seed Paper

Growing seed paper not only gives you beautiful plants, but it's environmentally friendly too! Not to mention it's an awesome craft idea for kids, so get ready to start growing your own garden no matter where you live!

Grow Seed Paper in a Pot

You need a pot or tray to start sprouting your seedlings. Fill your chosen receptacle with moist soil or compost – ideally peat-free! Don't pack the soil too tightly and place aside for the next step.

When should I plant the wildflower seeds in the paper?

Wildflower meadows are an elegant and low maintenance alternative to lawns, providing a fine floral display that can be enjoyed for months on end. Sow your seeds in March or April to avoid the risks of winter. On lighter soils, autumn-sown seeds will generally germinate and establish quickly; but on heavier ones they may need another month before emerging from their seed coating but are at risk from waterlogging which could cause rot.
