Plantable seed paper is special handmade paper embedded with real vegetable and herb seeds. When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, vegetables will grow from the paper, amazing right!
Please note that because our paper is made by hand, there may be a slight variation in the thickness from sheet to sheet. Due to the post-consumer waste fiber content, a slight variation in the shade of the paper may also occur.
HOW DO I GROW MY OWN VEGETABLES FROM YOUR BOOK?admin2020-12-20T15:24:19+00:00
It’s really simple, place your page on soil that is slightly compressed, but not too hard-packed. Add roughly 2cm of soil on top of the paper and give it a good drink of water every day. For best results, make sure it gets plenty of sunshine.
This process will vary slightly, depending on the vegetable, so make sure you read the inside back page of each book for specific instructions.
WHERE IS THE WILLSOW SEED BOOK MADE?admin2020-12-20T15:24:39+00:00
The books are made right here in Leicester, England. Tom, the founder of Willsow is the fourth generation to run their family printing company Willday Printers, which has been going strong for 76 years. With a printing background and all the facilities, in place to create a book, it meant he could turn a pipedream into a reality.
HOW SOON SHOULD WE PLANT A PAGE AFTER WE BUY A BOOK?admin2020-12-20T15:24:58+00:00
For best germination results, seed books should be planted within 2 years. It will still grow beyond that, but the germination rates will decline after that period. Store our books in a cool, dry place, to preserve the germination rates as long as possible. But let’s not hang around, let’s get our hands dirty and get planting!

This will vary depending on the vegetable and each book comes with specific instructions, but a good rule of thumb is that Spring when it’s a bit warmer, is the best time to plant if you live in an area where the ground does not freeze at that time of year.
If you haven’t got access to a garden, Willsow seed paper can be planted indoors in pots, as long as you ensure they get plenty of daylight and water.

My grandsons are so excited about the carrots growing and can’t wait to pick some. I have bought another book as a gift for my niece as her mummy is introducing her to planting seeds in their new garden. Thank you for the perfect gift.”

“A lovely book loved by the little boy it was gifted to. He had fun both reading and planting the pages. He has an active imagination and always keen to learn new things, this hit the mark.”

The service was also very efficient.”
