These plantable wildflower seed cards are such a brilliant idea! I’ve always felt bad about throwing birthday cards and greetings cards in recycling and I have drawers full of old cards that I can’t bear to get rid of, so the fact that you can enjoy reading these cards and then grow wildflowers from them, is amazing! I chose this new design for a Valentine’s Day as I think my husband is especially weird and weirdly special, I love this message and this card has been very popular so far!
These beautiful cards are designed by Sophie in Brighton and made from 100% recycled materials which are embedded with 11 varieties of British perennial wildflowers and grass seed. Once your loved one has enjoyed the message you have sent them, they can tear up the card and plant it and enjoy wildflowers year after year! This card is a gift that will keep on giving to both the person you send it too and to the bees, butterflies and insects too.
The image is drawn and painted by Sophie with watercolours and altered using photoshop to make bright illustrations. The cards are printed with edible inks so the inks don’t harm the soil once it’s planted. Full instructions are on the back of the card. I post out these cards free of charge.
