Happy Bee Day Plantable Birthday Card

Send a card and a birthday gift in one! This plantable 'bee day' card has been ethically handmade in England using 100% recycled and biodegradable materials.
The card is embedded with 24 varieties of native British wildflower seeds, specifically mixed by Ruby & Bo to support bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
The seeds are sent to artisan papermakers in the South of England who handmake the paper and hang it to air dry in the rafters of the mill. This helps to maximise the germination rate.
When the card is planted, the paper will compost away to leave only flowers. A mix of annuals to provide first year colour, as well as perennials, which will flower from year two.
The card can be potted indoors, or if the season is right, sown directly into the garden soil.
This card comes with a recycled paper envelope, made entirely from UK post-consumer (the greenest!) waste, a recycled paper ‘plant me’ sticker and a set of planting instructions which double as a postage protector to keep your card safe in transit.

All of our plantable products are best planted within 18 months. After that stage the paper can still be planted but the germination rates will start to decline. Please store in dry and cool conditions.
