Have A Healthy 2013 With A Plantable Seed Calendar

Why not start off the New Year with a daily reminder to eat better? This year you can with the new calendar by Botanical PaperWorks for 2013 that will help you grow a garden. The Grow-A-Garden Plantable Seed Calendar gives you the tools to plant your own vegetable and herbs. Each calendar page is made of seed paper that is embedded with different vegetable or herb seeds. Since the months are printed back-to-back on one page you’ll be able to plant one page for every two months. January and February are made of tomato seed paper so that you can get a head start growing the plants inside your home before transplanting them to your garden in spring. The remaining months are made of eco-friendly paper that contains lettuce, carrots, dill, basil, and parsley seeds.

Botanical PaperWorks designed the calendar in such a way that the vegetables can be planted during the first half of the year. Whereas the herbs can be enjoyed during the second half since they can be kept indoors. All you need to get started is a pot for planting, potting soil, water, a sunny corner in your home and a bit of patience. To stick with the example of the tomato seed paper you would first plant it under a thin layer (1/8 to 1/4 inch) of potting soil. Then keep it moist and in a sunny area until sprouts start developing. If they start looking too crowded in their pot you should transfer them into individual smaller ones. Once the weather gets warm enough they can be moved to the outside.

What’s so great about the plantable calendar is that it’s not only for people with a green thumb but also with a green mind. The biodegradable paper is made with post-consumer material collected from local businesses and schools that decomposes when planted in a pot of soil. This rescues 10 tons of paper per year from the local landfill. With the Grow-A-Garden Plantable Seed Calendar you can enjoy your own vegetables and herbs all year long. Happy New Year!
