Green thumb or all thumbs, even you can grow wildflowers from our seed paper! Some regions will have better luck with some seeds than others—but all regions will have a variety that thrives. Follow the tips below, and you’ll be enjoying beautiful wildflowers in no time!*

1. Loosen the soil.
2. Soak the seed paper in water overnight.
3. Plant the wet seed paper in the prepared soil, at a depth of about 1/4 inch.

*While perennials don’t normally bloom the first year, your annuals will.
The seeded paper shape foot is embedded with annual and perennial wildflower seeds. Soak the paper in a bowl of water for a day, then plant under a thin layer of loose soil. Water daily and keep moist until seedlings are well established. Germination time is 1-3 weeks.
