Greeting Cards that grow flowers? Yes! La Bella Baskets is launching a new product line of plantable greeting cards that will be arriving soon in my La Bella Baskets gift store. What is a plantable greeting card? A plantable greeting card is a specially crafted card. embedded with an array of wildflower seeds. that can be planted in the ground, watered and flowers will begin to sprout up in a few days. Planting instructions are printed on the back of every card along with the seed mixture. The paper will recycle naturally into the soil as the seedlings grow.
Plantable greeting cards are eco-friendly cards, created from 100% recycled ingredients ( shredded junk mail combined with post consumer pulp) to create a distinctive paper that is tree-free and artistically crafted, one sheet at a time, using no chemicals, dyes or additives. Plantable Greeting Cards feature only the highest quality mixture of non-invasive wildflower seeds and certain varieties of vegetables and herbs that are tested for purity and meet the highest standards of the United States Department of Agriculture. The Wildflower Seed mixture is comprised of Alyssum, Baby Blue Eyes, Black-Eyed Susan, Catchfly, and Siberian Wallflower. You can feel good about sending greeting cards that utilize recycling as an art form and demonstrate a solid dedication to preserving our environment.
Plantable Greeting cards measure either 4.25 " x 5.5" or 4.5" x 6" folded, and includes a color coordinating envelope. The inside of each card is blank to allow you to write your own personal message. These eco-friendly greeting cards provide economic value as well! Customers can purchase a box of 4 cards for only $13.95! Single box shipping is $7.17 which decreases with multiple box orders. You'll save money, time and the earth every time you share a plantable greeting card with family members, friends, neighbors or co-workers. It's an exciting new way to send a greeting for any occasion, and for the price of a postage stamp, you can send a lovely bouquet of flowers, vegetable or herb plants that will remind them of your kindness. Build a garden of love with every plantable greeting card!
Plantable Greeting Cards will arrive in my La Bella Baskets ordering website in mid-January, so watch my Leigh's Lovely Gift Baskets website heading for a photo announcement or check in my store later this month. Plantable cards can also be planted indoors to begin the germination of the plants in colder climates and transplanted to an outside location during warm months. Moisten the card and place it in a container with a circumference larger than seven inches and a minimum of 1/4" deep of fine soil. Allow for partial to full sun exposure and generously water daily to maintain moist soil. For dry climates, you may need to water the plantable cards up to three times per day until the plants germinate.
