Sounds like a fun project:
and they can be cut into shapes too.
Oh dear, I am so sorry, I got so excited about making your project and looking forward to spring, I did not answer your question.
To plant the seed paper, lightly loosen the soil when there is no chance of frost, lay the seed paper on the soil and cover with a thin layer of dirt and keep the soil moist. If you want to, you can soak the seeds overnight to give them more of a head start. Again, so sorry, I goofed.
Lay down your seed paper on soil. Cover it with 1/8" more soil and water well. Keep it moist and the seeds should sprout in 7-10 days depending on the type of seeds.
Here’s a link that might be helpful. It is comprehensive-going to explain to him how to make the paper as well as how to plant it.
Good infor here:
Just stick it under the soil where you want to flowers to grow :)
Just under the surface of the ground in early spring and water it in.
Hi Mary: This is pretty easy :) Get yourself a plastic tray or a pot and fill with soil. Then put the seed paper on top. You don't have to cover it. Water well, but not soggy. Then, put tray, or pot, somewhere warm and light so that it germinates. This may take a couple weeks. Be sure to keep the paper moist at all times, don't let it dry out. Once the seedlings are well established you can transfer them to a bigger pot. Or you can remove each seedling and grow a bunch off small pots.
Here's a site that may help:
Hi Patty, Place your seed paper on soil that is slightly compressed, but not too hard-packed. Add 1/8 inch of soil on top of the paper and give it a good drink of water. After that, make sure it's always moist and in a sunny spot. You should see sprouts within 7-10 days!
Hi Patty. I love seed paper. It's fun to see what sprouts from it. You can cut the seed paper into small or large pieces depending where you want to plant it. You can force germination by planting the paper indoors 3 or 4 weeks before you plan to replant it outdoors. Some people use pots or trays to plant in. You can also use an egg carton. Just put a little soil in each space and put a small piece of the seed paper on it. Put a very small amount of dirt on the paper and water. Transfer outdoors but only after last frost. For my part of the country we plant around Mother's Day. Good luck Patty. I hope this helps. Happy Holidays.
Oh I received the cutest wedding invitation this way. It said to cut the paper into smaller pieces and place it gently in the dirt under a thin layer of soil and water. I would do it in a pot to start. It's easier to control the water that way and of course, if it's cold in your area right now.
