So now I’m a convert, and yes, I’m still saving those seed-embedded papers, and thinking that early next spring I’m going to go for another round. (spring or autumn is the best time to plant wildflower seeds, not in the heat of summer when they’re more likely to desiccate.)

I was also happy to learn that there are several companies out there that make wedding invitations and favors, memorial cards (what a nice rememberence!) boxes, and stationery from plantable paper. Botanical Paperworks makes some pretty sweet pieces, and their style is more modern than hippie, but still has a lovely natural feel.

    We have recently added plantable wildflower cards to our product inventory for our online retail website as well as our retail outlet. We create our own designs to fit our image and having only been open just a few weeks, they have been one of our best selling products to date! These cards are incomparable to the standard greeting cards- whether it be a love note, thank you, sympathy, or ‘just because’, these cards give the recipient an everlasting effect come blooming season. Not to mention they are totally Eco-friendly!!

    You didn’t mention the letterpress card (image 5). I recognize it from Green Field Paper. They make the plantable paper.
