The Suds & Silk boxes are made of post consumer recycled paper embedded with seeds. Once planted, the box will biodegrade and grow into any combination of these wildflowers: Bird’s Eye (annual), Clarkia (annual), Black Eyed Susan (perennial), Catchfly (annual), Snapdragon (annual), and Sweet Alyssum (annual).
For successful planting, you need soil, a pot or a spot in the garden, and lots of water! During the first 10 days, give the paper a good soak. Water is crucial for germination! See directions on the box for more details.
The seed paper is approved by the CFIA and the USDA for planting in the U.S, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, Australia and many other countries worldwide! Each batch of seed is tested for noxious weeds and invasive species. Not only is it so fun to watch your box grow into flowers, the bees will thank you for the nutritious pollen you have supplied them!
Step 1: Fill a pot with soil or find a spot outside that isn’t so out of the way that you’ll forget to water your seeds!
Step 2: Tear your boxes into roughly 1 inch pieces. It’s okay if they overlap.
Step 3: Cover with 1/8th of an inch of soil then WATER. Literally drench it. The paper needs a good soaking.
Step 4: If the water pushes some of the soil around and uncovers the paper, just cover it back up gently.
Step 5: Sprinkle a little more soil on top if you need to. Water everyday for the next two(ish) weeks.
Step 6: Congratulations! You are now a plant mom :)
