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) Cut your seed paper label into smaller pieces and soak them in water for 24 hours
2) Prepare your pot. If there is any wax remaining in the pot, add some boiling water, leave for a couple of minutes and then wash with warm water and soap. The wicks at the bottom can also be dislodged and removed with the spoon (Tip: add extra boiling water to loosen them if needed).
3) Fill your pot with soil, just over 3/4 of the way and add your seed paper. Try not to overlap any pieces!
4) Add a thin layer of soil so that the paper is lightly covered and put your pot in a sunny place. Until the first sprouts appear, the paper must be moist at all times and then you can water as needed. Note: the seeds and sprouts will be delicate so be gentle when pouring water (a spray is recommended)!
5) Enjoy the process of being present, nurturing and watching your beautiful wildflowers grow!
