How to plant your seed paper label

Once you've finished burning your beautiful candle, simply follow these instructions and give your ceramic pot a new life, keeping it out of landfill:

1) Prepare your pot. To remove any remaining wax and the wicks at the bottom, add some boiling water, and leave for a couple of minutes. The wicks can then easily be removed with a spoon and the pot washed with warm water and soap. 


2) Soak your seed paper in water for 24 hours and fill your pot with soil. Add your seed paper and cover with a thin layer of soil so that the seed paper is completely covered.

 


3) Put your pot in a sunny place and keep the paper moist until the first sprouts appear, then water as needed. Note: remember that the seeds and sprouts will be delicate so be gentle when pouring water (we recommend using a spray)!

4) Enjoy the process of being present, nurturing and watching your beautiful wildflowers grow!
