They’re known as “Grow-A-Note” cards, and I’ve done a few of these “Grow-A-Note” projects for our clients in the past. ”Grow-A-Note” cards are made out of paper with actual seeds in them, so once you’ve enjoyed the card you can plant it, water it and see it grow into flowers. After working on these projects in the past, curiosity got the cat, and I decided to give it a shot for my own purposes.
I started by pulling an old Gatorade bottle out of the recycling bin, hacked off the top with a kitchen knife, went outside, got a few handfuls of dirt in there, poked a couple holes in the bottom, and I was halfway there. I put the card in between some wet paper towels, and now I think I am going to leave it over the weekend to see if I can get the seeds to germinate. Next week, I will plant them in my make-shift pot.
Here’s a picture of my start-up wildflower farm as it stands right now.
This product is a very cool way to communicate with others while being very environmentally friendly.
Kudos to clients who are always striving to keep our planet green! Sorry though, Lauren, the landscapers might need to replace a little dirt in one of our back flower beds. I promise, it went to a good cause!
