Pack of 20 fabulous seed paper hearts! There is a choice of 3 types of seed paper to have the hearts cut from – meadow wildflower and meadow grass seeds (with grass scattered throughout); poppy seeds with coloured petals; and Forget-me-not seeds. Please choose from the drop-down menu above. The meadow and poppy seeds are UK-grown.
Each heart measures 4 inches each in size at their widest point. The paper is made especially for us in the UK, so you won’t find it anywhere else! A planting information card is also included.
How do I plant seed paper hearts?
Easily! No excuses, even the most horticulturally-challenged of people can plant them with no fuss! They are best planted in Spring/Summer. Get yourself a pot of (peat-free) compost and then run a heart under the tap to give it a good soak for a few seconds. Place the heart on top of the compost and cover lightly with more compost. Then water again. Place the pot somewhere warm and light to aid germination. It is vital not to let the paper dry out – to do so will result in failure! Once the seedlings are growing nicely, repot the whole lot into a bigger pot and grown on. They look great on the patio or balcony when in full flower. It is not a good idea to plant outside into the soil as mice, slugs and other little tinkers will eat the seeds and seedlings. due to the risk of mice and slugs eating the seeds and seedlings.
Some ideas for using seed paper hearts
Use them as party or wedding invitations or thank you cards – best to use a thin-nibbed gel pen or biro rather than a felt pen or marker pen as these will bleed into the paper.
Punch a hole in the top of each heart peak and thread through with string to make bunting
If you are getting married, give them to your wedding guests as wedding favours
Use them as gift tags
They make great birthday presents or stocking fillers – tie a bundle of them together with pretty ribbon.
