Giving back to our environment

We all have the ability to help save the planet. That's why we have pledged to donate a portion of all sales to Greening Australia. - an organisation dedicated to protecting and restoring Australia's vegetation. Together, with your support we can help overcome some of our biggest environmental challenges.

 

Seeded paper

The seeds embedded within our plantable cards are Brachyscome iberidifolia (Swan River daisy)
With their soft-textured foliage and dainty blossoms, Swan River daisies make a colorful addition to the garden. The little flowers come in a wide variety of pastel shades and mix well with other garden plants. Opt for swan river daisies when planting containers because they will cascade attractively over the sides; they also make a show at the front of flower beds and as a border plant, forming low mats of color along a walkway. Plant these beauties in spring just after the last frost date and keep them deadheaded throughout the growing season to encourage continuous flowers all season long.

Native to Western Australia, Swan River daisies are tough plants and are tolerant of a wide variety of soil conditions. Their ideal growing conditions include moist, organically rich, well-drained soil. However, they adapt to tough situations, growing in sandy or clay soil and even rocky outcroppings. No matter where you are planning on growing swan river daisies, they appreciate fairly regular applications of fertilizer. If they are growing in containers, apply a slow release fertilizer along with a dose of liquid food every few weeks to keep them productive.

Seed viability

As with all garden seeds, the seeds within our paper have an expiration date. If kept in cool, light conditions below 50 degrees your Hello Petal card will last from 1-4 years before planting.

When planting your Hello Petal card, water daily to ensure paper does not dry out. If paper is dry the seeds cannot germinate.
