How to plant
Our standard planting instructions are:
Soak card in water until soft. Place card on seed raising mix (in pot or ground). Lightly cover with more mix, water and keep moist. Germination should take 7 – 21 days.
These (or something similar) would normally be included in your artwork which we would then print on your seeded paper. This also applies to a description of the seeds (or at least mention of what the seeds are), which most people would include in their artwork.
Any pre-printed items (such as Christmas, thank you etc) that we supply from stock will already have these planting instructions and seed identification printed.
Any seeded paper we supply to you unprinted and blank will not have planting instructions pre-printed. It will then be up to you to print any instructions (and seed description) you want on the paper.
Note that growth success is dependent on the paper being kept moist (and therefore soft) until after the seeds have germinated. Many seeds are embedded in the thickness of the paper and if it dries and hardens, the shoots of the newly germinating seeds will not be able to push through.
