............ PLANT IN 2014 ............
Seeds are fresh and custom selected for planting through 2014. Unlike other mass produced seed papers, our handmade artisan seed paper contains a special mix of 'premium' garden flower seeds. Our unique blend is a mix of zinnia, cosmos, snapdragons, columbine, poppies, daisies, cornflowers, calendula, dianthus/Sweet Williams, and other desirable garden flower seeds. Cheaper seed paper contains lower quality 'wildflower' type seeds that are essentially weeds. Our premium mix contains some annuals, for first year color, and also some perennials for blooms in the years to follow. Planting instructions are included.
Our plantable paper really does grow - that's a sprout growing right out of the plantable paper in the extra photos above! Planting instructions are included. The polar bears keep 12-18 months if kept in a cool, dry place.
To grow the bears:
Simply place on fertile soil in warm sunlight and keep damp! Bears should be planted within 12-18 months. They can be started indoors in a small pot during winter, just before the last winter frost. Move outside in the spring after the threat of frost has passed to promote continued growth. Or, save them until spring and plant then. For best results, plant bears on top or just under a thin layer of soil in warm weather in good sunlight and keep continuously damp to promote germination. Monitor and care for them as needed.
