Plantable Paper Polar Bears
** Plant them, they grow! **

Each plantable paper polar bear comes to you chock full of a mix of perennial and annual flower seeds embedded right inside the paper bears. Each one can be planted to grow! Simply place on fertile soil in warm sunlight and keep damp! Bears should be planted within 12-18 months. Specify the color of bear: White, brown, or black.

SIZE: 3 x 3 inches tall and wide.
Set of 20 bears, and an option to add hearts or cards. All options from the menu include the bears.

If you are ordering cards and have a wording preference for them, type that in the 'notes to seller' box when you check out on the next page. If you order cards and don't specify wording, we send plain or non-personalized cards with planting instructions.

..... ADD HEARTS .....
If you would like a pack of the mini hearts to go with them, you may add them to your order using this listing:
All hearts are also seed embedded and can be planted.

............ PLANTING SEEDS ............
All paper is made to order to promote freshness. We make this paper ourselves and have chosen the best variety of seeds to include. Unlike other seed papers, ours contains a special mix of 'premium' garden flower seeds, including perennials. All are chosen to be desirable garden flowers, perfect for long stem cut flower arrangements. The seeds include all of the following: Zinnia, cosmos, snapdragons, columbine, red and pink poppies, shasta daisies, cornflowers, calendula, dianthus/Sweet Williams, marigolds, and other desirable garden flower seeds as available. Cheaper seed paper contains way too many lower quality 'wildflower' type seeds such as baby's breath and english daisies that are weedy. 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. The bears keep 12-18 months and longer if kept in a cool, dry place away from heat, humidity, and sunlight.

To grow the bears:
Simply plant 1/4 inch or less in fertile soil in warm sunlight and keep damp! Bears can be started indoors in a small pot during winter, just before the last winter frost. If your place is cool, we recommend adding some warmth as most seeds prefer temps of 70º to get started. If starting inside 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 in warm weather in good sunlight and keep continuously damp to promote germination. Monitor and care for them as needed.
