In the last few months I’ve acquired several “plantable paper” items — a bookmark, a coaster, notepaper. Most say they grow flowers. One says it will grow lettuce. You can get almost anything printed on these “plantable papers” — business cards, wedding invitations, stationery, etc. Even my favorite store apparently distributed plantable coasters in some of their promotions. (I don’t have one, btw, so if anyone knows how I can get one, I’d be much obliged.)
I found these directions for how to make my own plantable paper and plan to try it this week using newspaper and some wildflower seeds I found in the garage. I’ll try to document it here, so stay tuned. I’m already having flashbacks of making paper mache pinatas as a kid.
