WoW! The cover of this notebook is made from so-called seed paper.
The seeds in the paper: Rudbeckia Hirta or Sesame. The paper is made by hand.
This kind of paper is biodegradable and ecologically friendly, made from recycled materials rather than from trees. The seeds are then embedded into the paper. If you plant the paper in soil, the seeds will grow and the paper will simply biodegrade – leaving you with beautiful flowers, herbs or vegetables. Easy to plant, easy to grow, easy to prevent waste.
How does it work?
1. Prepare your soil: make sure you get good organic soil, and fill a pot up to around the two-third mark. The soil should be firmly pressed down but not tightly packed. Your seeds can be grown indoors or outside, but be aware of the temperature – if it’s freezing cold or a heatwave it’s better to plant your seeds indoors.
2. Plant your seed paper: Place the seed paper on top of the prepared soil in the pot, and cover with another layer of soil around 3 mm thick. Press it down lightly.
3. Water your seeds: Water the soil and seed paper in the pot so that it’s moist but not soaked. Keep the paper and soil moist for the first 10 days to ensure the seeds germinate.
4. Look after your plants: when your flowers, herbs or vegetables begin to sprout, continue to keep the soil moist but beware of overwatering. Once the plants are bigger and stronger, water as needed depending on the temperature.
