Artistry Gift Wrap May Box

Artistry Gift Wrap is a subscription box that sends different types of wrapping paper. This month they did plantable wrapping paper. I have never seen plantable wrapping paper so I thought it was pretty cool.

The box had a lot less items than usual but the wrapping paper is imported from England and not available in the U.S. I must confess that even though it was supposed to be wrapping paper the gardener in me wanted to plant it. I started with the sunflower paper. I’ve never grown sunflowers before so we’ll see how it goes. First I took the backing off which was apparently a mistake because all the seeds fell out. So I ended up just throwing them willy nilly in the garden along with some other seeds so we’ll see what happens. For the wildflower paper I just put the whole thing in the garden and threw some dirt on the top. Here is a picture.

As you can see it has some sprouts already. I’m sure I need to go back and do a better job with the soil but I think for just tossing it in the garden with a few handfuls of dirt I’m pretty pleased to see some little sprouts. I’ll keep you posted later in the season to see how it does.
