    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!! http://explorersmarket.com/shop/plantable-cards
