Make and send your own plantable greeting cards!
Draw on the paper and send to your loved one.
They just bury the card under 0.5cm of soil, water it and keep it moist and warm (indoors if it's cold or too hot outside), and watch their wildflowers bloom! The photo of flowers is of a test with this paper.
Handmade from a recycled paper pulp which, whilst drying, has living wildflower seeds added to it.
