My hearts are made using a variety of paper upcycled paper sources, including junk mail and scraps from other paper projects available elsewhere in my shop. As these particular tags are made with the printed remnants of junk mail, some batches will have a variety of colored speckles as well.
These hearts are embedded with a mix of organic wildflower seeds including calendula, cornflower, siberian sunflower, shasta daisy, lance leaf coreopsis, plains coreopsis, cosmos, sulphur cosmos, giant larkspur, Russian Mammoth sunflower, sweet william, purple cornflower, california poppy, blanketflower, annual baby's breath, dwarf sunspot, candytuft, rose mallow, blue flax, scarlet flax, perennial lupine, love-in-a-mist, baby blue eyes, shirley poppy, mexican hat, gloriosa daisy, black-eyed susan, catchfly, white yarrow, wild columbine, siberian wallflower, godetia, farewell-to-spring, Chinese houses, rocket larkspur, foxglove, perennial gaillardia, moutain phlox, baby snapdragon, sweet alyssum, annual lupine, evening primrose, red poppy, none-so-pretty, dwarf cornflower, wallflower, elegant clarkia, globe gilia, tidy tips, toadflax, lupine arroyo, lupine baby, and tall marigolds. Most seeds are grown by American Meadows.
And planting the hearts to make use of the seeds is simple. Simply cover with about a quarter inch of soil and water well until seedlings appear (approximately 4-6 weeks)!
Each order comes with the following planting poem that you can use as much or as little as you'd like:
In this paper little seeds lie in wait
To be planted in your garden or, perhaps, near your gate.
Find a nice spot and cover with a quarter inch of dirt
... And a little bit of water sure wouldn't hurt!
Soon you'll spend a beautiful day under the sky
In your new patch of flowers, like cosmos, daisies and catchfly!
