Plantable Paper Hearts Wedding Favors
** Plant them, they grow!! **

Each handmade plantable paper heart comes with flower seeds embedded right inside the paper. Our plantable paper is 100% recycled and completely biodegradable. As the paper decomposes, the seeds grow. Choose the color of hearts you'd like for your event. A wide variety of colors are available, see list below.

One of our largest plantable paper shapes, these hearts are definitely big enough to write names for table settings, thank you messages, and more. You can also mount them to card stock and create your own plantable cards, use as wedding favors or mementos for memorials, bridal showers, birthday party favors, or as gorgeous gift tags.

Yes, we can make them with herb seeds instead.
To order hearts with herb seeds, you will need to add this listing to your cart too:

Please type in your COLOR preferences in the 'notes to seller' box that appears during checkout. If no preference is indicated, I will send a random assortment of plantable flower seed hearts from the stock I have available at the time of your order.

** Colorful flower petals that create a bleeding effect around the petals can be added to the surface of the paper. Please inquire for costs and availability. **

.................... PLANT THRU 2016 .....................
Our seeds are fresh and specially-selected for their desirability and are meant for planting in 2016. Our special mix of premium garden flower seeds is a mix of zinnia, cosmos, snapdragons, columbine, poppies, daisies, cornflowers, calendula, dianthus/Sweet Williams, and other flower seeds as available. Cheaper seed paper contains lower quality 'wildflower' type seeds that are essentially weeds, like sweet alyssum/baby's breath that is actually banned in many areas. Our premium mix contains desirable annuals, for first year color, and also beautiful perennials for blooms in the years to follow. Our herb seed mix includes basil, chives, oregano, dill, parsley, lavender, and thyme. Planting instructions are included. Our plantable paper really does grow - that's a sprout growing right out of the plantable paper in the photo at the right! Growing is simple but not foolproof. The seeds will need proper care, just like other seeds.

PLANTING NOTE: The paper hearts can be started indoors in a small pot at any time of year. They will need to be moved outside to promote continued growth. Or, save them until spring and plant then. Seeds remain viable 12-18 months and longer when kept in a cool, dry place.

To grow the paper:
Simply plant on or just under fertile soil in warm sunlight and keep damp. Remember, seeds need warmth, water, and sunlight to get started and after that, care and attention.

......... SHIPPING ............
All paper is made-to-order to promote freshness. The current wait time after an order is placed is about 1-2 weeks before most orders ship out. If you need a rush order sooner than this, please contact me first to see about availability. There is a $28 rush order charge that can be necessary to guarantee faster delivery. Whenever possible, I time the production and shipment of orders to arrive about 2-3 weeks before the event date to ensure they arrive with plenty of time to get ready as you wish, and are also maximum freshness so that you can order them in advance with peace of mind. Please let me know when your event is so that we can schedule their production for the best time.

FALL ORDERS:
We have a vacation planned for October, so if your event is in October or early November, please order by early September to ensure you receive your order in time. You may still order while we are on vacation, but no orders will ship from Oct 6 - Nov 6. Orders will begin shipping on Nov. 7 on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Shipping is via Priority mail for all US addresses.
Yes, we do ship internationally (but not to New Zealand) due to customs restrictions on seeds. Please allow several additional weeks for the delivery of international orders.
