If you want to honor and recognize the teacher in your child’s life with a special gift, these plantable paper apples will be the kind of fruit that will surprise and delight any teacher.

This listing is for 10 red apples, with a little brown stem and green leaf, measuring approximately 3 inches in height. These apples come with a double-sided tag. One side of the tag includes a poem just for the teacher in your life:

Every day, you plant seeds of knowing,
Though the harvest you may never see.
But with hope, you continue sowing,
To plant young minds with what could be.
And tend to the flowers and the weeds,
To find what is hidden in a seed.

On the other side of the tag is my original planting instructions poem:
In this paper, little seeds lay asleep,
Waiting to be planted in soil 1/4 inch deep.
Water well then keep moist for 4 to 6 weeks.
Until little plants come out of the soil for a peek.
Many flowers will share their colors to the max.
Like purple cone flower, red poppy and blue flax!

Hand one out to everyone in the class to write a message of thanks and deliver to the teacher, tuck one into a card or wrap them up and give them as a present. Your teacher can even use them as a lesson in the classroom by putting them in a terrarium and forcing the seeds to sprout with the kids. Or use them as incentive awards in the classroom. Of course, you can use them as favors at a graduation party, too! If you are having an orchard-themed wedding, these plantable paper apples would be the perfect conversation starter when used as place cards.

This paper has been made using recycled paper more than 40 wildflower seeds that are never genetically modified. These seeds can be planted in conditions ranging from full sun to half shade, and in soils from sandy, clay or acidic to moist or dry. Flowers will happily bloom from the Northeast to the Southwest. Take a look at the last photo to see an example of my seeded paper sprouting!

---------------> Here’s what customers are saying:

“Martha is outstanding to work with! Ships fast and such a personal shipping experience. And I love the apples for teacher gifts!!”


“Lovely item for our eco-friendly & garden themed bridal shower to go on our homemade jam favors. Thank you!”

---------------> Here's all "the dirt" on my plantable papers:

STORING YOUR PAPER: You can store our plantable paper in any cool (not freezing) dry place that is not subject to extreme temperature variations. Some products come packaged in an acid-free plastic envelope. If you will not be using your plantable paper for a while, please open the plastic packaging so the seeds can breathe. For best germination, you should plant your paper within 12-18 months of purchase.

PLANTING YOUR PAPER: To force your plantable paper indoors, simply moisten the paper until damp but not wet, put in a plastic jar and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm, sunny window and you will see little seedlings in about 2 weeks! If planting outdoors, wait until all danger of frost has passed, then rake the soil, scatter the paper onto the soil, cover with 1/4 inch of topsoil, water and keep moist until germination, approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
